    Close, but no dice ^.^ f(x) = 10 If you notice, there's no x in this equation. That means the number of hours he's played would be 10, regardless of how many weeks has passed, and if Peter's the kind of boy I think he is, I don't think that's true, he's gonna make the most of the five hours he's allowed to play, right?
