The real problem is that we rely too much on calculators and have lost our math sense.

My first reaction was that the bat cost $1.00, less than a second later my brain screamed "no that's wrong" (because that would make the bat only 90 cents more expensive than the ball). It took me about three more seconds to calculate the correct answer.
