Ant_222. «Minus three» would be the correct answer...

Is it -3 or +2?

Oh!!! I thought eight=9 at the moment of posting.

«Is it -3 or +2?»

It's neither -3 nor +2. It's -2

3 - (8 -3) = -2

Hi guys,

Draw eight circles

Color three circles red

Color the others green

How many more red circles than green circles?

Let's be fussy about this. This is an English Forum. The question should be How many more red circles than green circles are there? A normal English answer to this question would be something like 'None', or 'There aren't more red circles, there are more green circles.'

If you want to quibble about math, do the instructions prevent me from drawing my circles one inside the other? What does that make the answer?

That's implied.

Ant_222My answer implied that I knew it was just for fun.
