### Pre-Teen Genius?

Watch out, Albert Einstein! Twelve-year-old Jacob Barnett is working on his own *theory of relativity* (a very famous combination of two of Eintein's theories that is important in physics and astronomy). Jacob taught himself calculus, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in a week! He finished high school at the age of eight and began studying at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Now he may leave college for a research job at the university. His IQ (a measure of intelligence) is even higher than Albert Einstein's was! The average 12-year-old's IQ would be around 90. Solve **8.5% of 2,000** to find out Jacob's IQ.

Jacob has an IQ of 170!
