Jon and Bob were betting on a baseball game and Bob lost. To get back at him he bets Jon.
Bob says, "I bet you I can do two to three thousand push-ups in 10 minutes."
Jon says, "Fine, let's see it. You couldn't possibly win that bet."

Bob won the bet. How is that possible?


Answer

He did two push-ups, since it is worded that he can do 2 - 3000, but Jon thought it was 2000 - 3000.
