Dear Math people,

Can you tell us the definition of the word FLIM? My daughter is in 4th grade, and this came up. Could not find it in the Websters Dictionary.

Why mathematics? The Oxford English Dictionary has 2 entries for flim. The first is that it means the same as flam (A sham story, fabrication, falsehood; a piece of deception, a trick.). The second is a British slang word for a 5-pound note.
