The number of lost marbles has to be between 2 and 14 due to grammatical reasons.*Originally posted by @fmf***Maths test.**

It depends on whether they are really lost forever or whether it was just not possible to locate them at the moment the question was asked.- Joined

The teacher said she'd lost only some of them. So someone is not telling the truth. Maths was more straightforward in my day.*Originally posted by @drewnogal***That could mean that Janell truly has lost her marbles.**- Joined
