It turns out you're never too young to understand the meaning of a girl code.

One fourth grade girl named Maddy proved that when she took math homework to a whole other level, schooling all of us on what it means to be a friend.

The math problem and answer was posted to the Huffington Post's Parents' Facebook Page by Maddy's mom, Jenn Morison Douglas. It read:

"In high school, Frank, Mike, George and Ron each went on a total of four dates with four different girl. The second time Frank dated Rose and George dated Kay. The third time Mike dated Mary and Ron dated Louise. The fourth time, George dated Louise and Ron dated Kay. For each of the 4 times, tell which girl dated which boy. Hint: For the fourth date Louise dated Gorge and Kay dated Ron. You know Frank dated Rose on the second date, who had to be Frank's fourth date?"

Instead of giving a mathematical answer, Maddy explained the problem to the answer in simpler terms.

On the bottom of the page she wrote: “I can’t answer[sic] this problem because my mom says according [sic] to girl code you shouldn’t date a friend’s ex-boyfriend[sic].”

Douglas explained to the Huffington Post and on Facebook that she was surprised such a question was being asked to fourth graders. However, both Douglas and Maddy’s teacher realized that little girl did in fact have a very valid point.

“Her teacher laughed at her answer and told her ‘Good Point,’” Douglas told the Huffington Post.

And Maddy does indeed have a very solid answer to this predicament. She might only be in fourth grade, but she definitely has girl code down.
