How many times does the number "9" appear in the page numbers of a 100page newspaper? Choose from
the possible answers below.
( )9
( )10
( )15
( )19
( )20
( )21
Unless this is a trick question that I have missed, there should be 11 times that the
number "9" appears:
9, 19, 29, 39, 49, 59, 69, 79, 89, and twice in 99 = 11 "9's"
"11" is not a possible choice.
Is there something special about the numbered pages of a newspaper that would affect this answer?
Or are they considering that the "99"
has only one number 9 since the first
9 would represent 90?
