I put this up on the board for one of my maths classes today and one of the students pointed out another answer that works - ewe. Add and f at the start and an r at the end and you have fewer. This would have to be one of my all-time favourite teasers though.

it could be ten (10). Ten has three letters. add two letters to three letters which equals five letters. a number with five letters is three (3). three (3) is less than ten.

very easy, i know another one just like it, what one syllable word can be said quicker when two letters are added to it. Now if i need to tell you the answer, you don't deserve to live.

ha ha that was cool
at first i was like if you use one then add n at the beginning it becomes none but then i realized n was just one letter
anyways, i loved the teaser!

i saw this, yet it was "short" and "shorter"

it could also be the word "ewe".
when you add the 2 letters F and R at the front and back, respectively, it spells the word fewer

This is one of the best teasers - nice little twist, not too tough but not too easy. Great job (even if it was copied from somewhere)!

Cute... it should have been easy but my brain just doesn't work like that ;)

It was sort of a vague question. There are more answer, but that was probably the best.

blackbelt...the whole POINT of teasers is to make them misleading

Gr8 teaser, I got it after looking at it twice

You know the riddle also works if you consider the words "three", add "two" and the word "five" has fewer letters.

Just an observation there are two valid answers.
