    I don’t think anyone has left fingers!

  • Dude

    Well … I have left fingers. Referring to the fingers on my left hand.

  • anant

    Assuming that all of them have all the five fingers, multiplying together the number of left fingers each person has, amounts to 120 (1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5)

  • Dude

    I like the way you think outside the box, Anant … but that’s not it.

    Keep trying.

  • Boesner

    since a thumb isnt considered a finger, multiply 6,840,507,000 by four and you get 27,362,028,000

  • Dude

    Nope, keep guessing.

  • “multiply together the number of left fingers each person has”
    Each person has four fingers on their left hand, barring amputation, and assuming the thumb does not count as a finger. So this question asks you to “multiply together” 4. Which isn’t possible.

  • Dude

    The question asks you to multiply together the number of fingers each person has. So if it were two people, we would multiply 4 x 4 and arrive at 16. Get it?

  • Victoria

    would it be 4 to the power of 6,840,507,000

  • Victoria, it is not to the power of, just multiplied.
    4 x 6,840,507,000 = 27,362,028,000
