 Ichabod Clay Oct 16, 2001 Confusing and very good. Keep up the good work. starman Oct 17, 2001 One half is a small positive number. So is one over one thousand. Fractions are number too and you didn't specify whole integers in the question. rohddawg Mar 29, 2002 i must agree on starman with this one... but i did go for one thousand... Gerd Aug 30, 2003 I like this riddle. Astounding, that we must go so far, to get the first number with an 'A'. It is boring, we always have to speak of integers. Btw: I think no one is able to name the nearest number to zero with an 'A' in it. username Aug 25, 2004 hmm...i thought of things like a dozen or a hundred. wouldn't one of these be another answer? username Aug 25, 2004 oops...sorry about the dozen...just a hundred. Maslin Jun 09, 2005 I thought it was one hundred and one. Since its not one hundred one its one hundred and one. dutchymonster Jul 17, 2005 Its only a hundred and one when you say it. Technicaly it one hundred one Swordoffury1392 May 30, 2006 In the set if integers, only ... -2, -1, 0, 1, 2... are included. Fractions are real #s, NOT integers. So the complaints are erroneous. Great teaser, btw! TehIgnored Jul 12, 2006 I think it was corrected AFTER those comments were made SOF... good teaser. xdbtcp Jul 28, 2011 3 = tee Aitch ar e e
