Laura composes a math problem

[After I referred to myself (perhaps unjustifiably) as a mathematician.]

Laura: "You're a mathematician?"
Jack: "Well, I've always had an interest in it, and I know a lot."
Laura: "Really? You know a lot?"
Jack: "Go ahead, ask me something."
Laura: "Uh, okay. A train leaves L.A at 3pm for Chicago. Another train is leaving Chicago.... Um, count the trains."
