Indian Hill students are showing how algebra can put crayons in the hands of area children.

High-school students in the Math Service Club worked with Crayons to Computers during the 2015-16 school year to help solve a supply-and-demand dilemma.

The organization, which is a nonprofit free store for Greater Cincinnati area teachers, was trying to come up with a way to insure that the teachers got the supplies they needed. In some instances supplies may run out because of demand, and Crayons to Computers was looking for a solution to the problem.

The Math Service Club stepped up to the plate with a solution, one that involved creating an algebraic equation.
