Default More then one right answer

All math problems have more than one right answer and if you disagree with me you are wrong! What do you think?

What about the math problem, do all math problems have more than one right answer?

My kid's kindergarten teacher said that some problems have more than one answer and one of the dads in the meeting had a nervous breakdown. He was ranting about the destruction of a generation. I think he's an accountant. So.


Anyway, point is, be careful about dropping too many truth bombs without considering your audience. The world isn't ready to hear this.

Does saying the same thing in two different languages count as two different answers?

That sounds about right for someone who chose a profession founded on suspicion of subtraction.

Do 2 and |2| count as two different answers?
