Friday's Quiz

So we found out this morning that our boss won't be our boss after
today... he's being promoted. Good for him, not so good for us!

So, here?s the problem for today:



There's this unusual little bar, where you can get a free beer if you
know the secret code.

The secret code works like this: you sit down at the bar. The bartender
tells you a number. And you tell him another number. If it's right, you
get a free beer.

For example, a customer goes up to the bar and the bartender says,
"six." The customer says, "three," and he gets his free beer.

The second fellow goes up to the bar, and the bartender says,
"twelve." The customer says, "six," and he gets his free beer!

A third customer sits at the bar, and the bartender says, "fourteen."
The customer says, "eight." He gets a free beer.

You're sitting there. The bartender turns to you and says, "twenty-
two."

What do you say?

you count the dash in twenty-two or not. If you count the dash then it's ten if you don't count the dash it's nine.

You too?

I am not sure how you speak with dashes though.

if you are saying somethign to someone and tehy reply, how do you discern that there is a dash in 22? It isn't actually twenty-two is it? No, that would be a written word problem.

Poor bartender!

If this was suposed to be a written/word problem, it needs to be laid out as such. In this case it is verbal, dashes should not be able to play a part.
