    3+3+3+5+5+0+20+15=54 😞

    EDIT: 3+3+3+5+5+0+2+0+1+5=27 😞 😞

    or 2+7=9 😞 😞 😞

    I give up!

    Thirty, six, and ten are numbers, too.

    From Wikipedia: "A number is an abstract entity that represents a count or measurement. A symbol for a number is called a numeral." A number written in letters is still a number.

    Whalechicken's Faith Whale is cuter than mine, but I am still glad he shared this one with me.

    In either case, I stand corrected. 😳

    54 if you don't count the written numbers as numbers or 100 if you do.

    Don't forget the minus signs, possibly indicating negative nubers.

    We'll have none of that. We're using the Peano axioms in this thread.

    1. 0 is a number.
    2. The succesor of any number is a number.
    3. If a and b are numbers and they have the same succesor then a equals b.
    4. 0 is not the succesor of any number.
    5. If S is a set containing 0, and the succesor of any number n is included in S then S contains all the numbers.

    By rule 4 negative numbers are not numbers.

    Ah, but the standard definition of the real number includes the axioms:

    a. There is an additive identity (0)
    b. Every number has an additive inverse
    c. There is a multiplicative identity (1)
    d. Every number (except 0) has a multiplicative inverse
    e. 0 != 1

    c. and b. imply the existence of -1 as a real number.

    Peanos axioms is about natural numbers, not only numbers. -1 is not a natural number by these asioms, for that you have to have an extention to the natural numbers - the integers.

    But of course -1 is a number. (Of which kind?) An integer. (Not a natural number?) No, there is no negative natural numbers. Not by the Peanos axiom of the natural numbers, anyway. (Why?) Zero is the smallest natural number. (Why?) "0 is not the successor of any natural number."

    45? Is that even close to correct?
