Kelly's friend challenges her to pull a matching pair of socks out of a drawer while blindfolded. If Kelly succeeds, she wins a trip to Orlando, but if she loses, she has to wash her friend's feet for a whole month - yuck! With 6 identical white socks and 5 identical black socks in the drawer, how will Kelly be able to ensure she picks a matching pair without looking? Why... with help from the math fairies, of course!
