Emergency dispatchers never know what kind of call they may be answering, but one Colorado dispatcher had quite the puzzle to solve for a young caller who recently dialed 911.

The youngster called authorities in Fort Collins, Colorado, with a math homework emergency. 

In a video shared on social media by the Fort Collins Police Services, a young child can be heard politely telling dispatchers, “Hi, this isn’t an emergency, but I’m 10 years old and I’m working on my math homework right now and I can’t figure out what 71 divided by 3,052 is.”

After a little over a minute of conversation the duo was able to come up with an answer. 

The sweet exchange can be heard in full in the video below.
