# Math with Fish

I caught ten fish without an I,

And nine without a tail.

Six had no head,

And half of eight

I weighed upon the scale.

Now who can tell me as I ask it,

How many fish were in my basket?

And nine without a tail.

Six had no head,

And half of eight

I weighed upon the scale.

Now who can tell me as I ask it,

How many fish were in my basket?

### Answer

0. If you take the I(1) off the 10 you have 0. If you take the tail off 9 you have 0. If you take the head off 6 you get 0. If you cut 8 in half, you get 0. Do the math.It's 0!
