# Think of a number beginning with [closed]

A while ago, I was watching a video about teaching children to count when these challenges suddenly occurred to me. Note that they may be easy in other languages (eg. in German you have: eins, zwei, drei which will solve the last one) so I’m limiting the answers to English only.

1. Think of a number beginning with “t”.

2. Think of a number beginning with “o”.

3. Think of a number beginning with “p”.

4. Think of a number beginning with “m”.

5. Think of a number beginning with “z”.

Edit: Also, all numbers are less than a billion.

• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not a puzzle.

• The point about this was that it was meant to be a deflection for those who like to think naturally. Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 12:18

the number pi ($\pi$). It has a constant value but still it's a number.

• Yes - that was the one I was looking for (pi). The point of the puzzle was that it was meant to trick the reader into thinking natural numbers. Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 12:21
• You probably mean pi, not pie. Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 12:21

• I selected this answer, as this was the main heart of the challenges, whilst the others were just deflections. Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 12:35

Two; one; pentillion; million; zero.
