# Homework Help: Quick Math

Posted by Gina on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 at 5:35pm.

Is a dozen dozen equals to 24?

wouldn't a dozen dozen be 144?

and 144 is a gross.

a dozen is 12
a dozen is 12
so isnt that 24?

When you say double double such as in coffee. You want two milk and two sugar. Thats four.

So wouldnt dozen dozen be 12 and 12?

Gross?

A gross is a dozen dozens.

No...I think that it would be 144... you were right

line up 12 boxes. In each box you have a dozen eggs. So you have a dozen boxes each containing a dozen eggs. How many eggs will there be in all the boxes together?
In your example you multiplied 2x2 to get four. It just happens that 2 + 2 also is 4. 12 x 12 = 144.

I still dont understand. So dozen dozen is 144. 12*12? So triple triple would be nine?

Thank-you everyone. This really helps. =)

And a gross is 144 somethings. So a dozen dozen is a gross. That's gross, arrgh!!

I have a question:

How would you solve this?

a dozen dozen apples at half a dozen dimes a dozen?

In this cause is dozen 12? And half a dozen dimes in 60 cents?
