    Not being a sports fan, I was a little disappointed when the mystery industry turned out to be professional basketball.  However, the lesson still holds.  Ordinary people who have even just a little well-learned math can innovate and improvise in an efficient and precise manner.  Being a person who could not make my living without math, I'm all for publicizing an inspiring story about how someone who knew no more than high-school algebra managed to save an industry.
