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
