Earthquake rattles Italy
The reporter used numbers by describing the magnitude of the earthquake, the time in two different
time zones and the amount of lives that were claimed by the earthquake.
The way the reported used the numbers was a bit over whelming because the article was about an
earthquake that hit Italy and so the time zones and measurements got really confusing when the
reporter had to write both amounts in. I think if the reporter would have just stuck with on standard
time zone and metric system it would have been less confusing. The reporter did not use math in this
article, but more about time and distances. This part of the article was good because it gave the reader
a visual picture of how the earthquake was moving. The reporter did source the numbers and they were
taken from the U.S. Geological Survey and a spokesman with the Italian civil protection agency.
