Mathematical Misinterpretations

Idea from Wren Schultz

Phrases that can be misinterpreted (either visually or aurally) by the mathematically inclined.

For extra fun, submit these in quiz form.  e.g. "Bartender's offering = 14"  (the answer is the name of a drink.)

These are great in quiz form, so that's how I've left them.  Answers at the bottom of the page. 

1.  Off-road vehicle classification = 16

2.  Cocktail = 14

3.  Good vision or news program = 1

4.  Part of a baseball game = 9

5.  Playground game = 16

6.  Voyager character = .777. . .

7.  A piece of lumber = 8

8.  Rasta-ism referring to the oneness of Jah and every human = 2

9.  "Acknowledged" = 6  (or maybe 40)
