Club password (Posted on 2004-03-29) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A man wanted to enter an exclusive club but did not know the password that was required. He waited by the door and listened. A club member knocked on the door and the doorman said, "twelve." The member replied, "six " and was let in. A second member came to the door and the doorman said, "six." The member replied, "three" and was let in. The man thought he had heard enough and walked up to the door. The doorman said ,"ten" and the man replied, "five." But he was not let in.

What should he have said?

The answer was suppose to be three because what the man thaught was the you devide teh number by which was not the answer what he was supposed to do is count the letters of the number and say it like twelve has six letters that is why the man said six when he replied to the door men who said twelve

same for the man who replied three when told six because six has three letters so what the man should have answered was three because ten has three letters
