Not a good sign for Rocinha math education

So I got a HUGE meal for only R$8.50 (US$4.25). That for enough food to comfortably feed two 200-pound males for dinner. And this was lunch!

So I hand the waiter at this mean a R$50 and say "give me back R$40 and keep the rest." He gives me back R$42.50. I would have thought it was funny except that you realize that that's just the state of education here. It's sad, because it prevents so many from getting good jobs.
