    Yes, 22.5 if those numeric representations that are spelled out, like half a cucumber or half a dozen mushrooms, count as numbers; 16 if they don't. You might need to see how the information was originally presented. I doubt 22.5 is correct because it's so easy and throt says none in his group got it right.

    Re: Quiz ,, sorry its way off topic...

    Beat me to it GM, whole numbers makes 16 as you've written, excluding fractions.

    Well, alternatively the answer could be 29.
    How?
    Throt said "add all the numbers", whích could allow "half a dozen" to add up to 12.5.
    What's the prize., throt?

    Re: Quiz ,, sorry its way off topic...

    Guys, you know that quiz it's basically a scam, right? And that there's no 'correct' answer?
    It's a kind of show designed to part people from their money. TV stations were full with those, until either the broadcasting authority banned them, or people got smart (not sure which )

    Re: Quiz ,, sorry its way off topic...

    17? Given the clue above about only adding the numbers...

    Or does Dozen count for a number, in which case 29?
    Or 16 if you being VERY explicit, and counting only the numberic characters.
    What's this clump of hair doing in my fist? If I give you 60p, will you tell me the answer?
