“it is clear to a reasonable bystander that the first party made a mistake in expressing the terms of the contract: the price may be absurdly low or quite unrelated to the range of prices quoted by both side during negotiations” pg 157 - the price offered kaleski was significantly lower than what was quoted during the negotiations. - refer to case 8.1 on page 157 for precedent. The court found that the acceptor of the contract could not possibly have believed that was the intended offer price. No reasonable person could have believed such an offer to have been made intentionally. -decision could be in favour of Reiger because there was a change in circumstances for Kaleski since she needed the money for her new venture. Therefore she may have made the offer really attractive so Reiger would find it hard to turn down. -Reiger and Kaleski were talking about two different units of measure and this misunderstanding should have not allowed a contract to be formed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
