Yes but you can do the same subtraction sum over and over again until you die

I agree. You can subtract 6 from 36 as many times as you want until the day you die. Maybe that shoule be the answer instead.

I also agree, you could use up 18,562 pieces of paper, and still keep subtracting 6 from 36. Then using roman numerals.......

name are tiny, but the person who said "then you'd have 3" that was the answer I had. I think we're still right
