What's as light as smoke but strong as a brick?

Heres another one.
Kind of easy but I'll give you a logic question.

Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?

Good answer! I assume the intended answer is 6, but 4.8 is more precise.

The usual response to this question is indeed 6.
Lots of people have heard this puzzle before, which is why it is a nice surprise to meet a different answer that is also valid.

So, here is a puzzle for you: how is 4.8 a correct answer?

a person can never smoke an entire cigar (that would leave no butt)
so he can ROLL 6 cigars but only smoke 4/5 of each (5 butts =1 cigar =>1 butt = 1/5 => smoked part = 4/5) 0.8x6=4.8
