Algebra problem of the day

A mountain of laundry needing to be done = a gajillion trips up and down the stairs

A gajillion trips up and down the stairs = "Screw it, I'll just stay in the basement for a while"

"Screw it, I'll just stay in the basement for a while" = a dramatic decrease in the amount of clutter in the basement + a dramatic increase in the amount of recycling ready to be taken to the recycling center

Additionally:

A mountain of laundry needing to be done = a need to fold some of the laundry to free up enough baskets to bring the newly-cleaned laundry up the stairs

A previously-scheduled engagement = a fair amount of walking around outside

Solve for how tired Amanda is.

Answer listed in the teacher's edition: "Utterly exhausted."
