How many times can you subtract 3 from 99?


"How many times can you subtract 3 from 99?" is a tricky question. We think that there are three different answers to this question.

Answer 1: Once
It is once, because after you subtract 3 from 99 once, you are left with 96. Thus, you cannot subtract 3 again from 99.

Answer 2: 33 times
33 times, because 99 divided by 3 is 33. After you subtract 3, 33 times from 99, then there is nothing left to subtract from.

Answer 3: Infinite
There is nothing that says you can't keep subtracting 3 from 99 indefinitely. Just because you will end up with negative numbers doesn't mean you have to stop subtracting!
