Half of Twelve is... Seven? (Posted on 2005-01-11) Difficulty: 1 of 5
An intelligent friend of mine told me the other day that half of twelve was seven. I told him it was six, and tapped it in on my calculator to prove it was, in fact, 6. He then wrote down on a piece of paper how he was right.

What did he write?

Your friend used roman numerals. He sliced XII in half horizantally, giving him a stubby little VII.
