    Each set of 10 has one 7.
    77 has 2 sevens, so that's one extra 7.

    We have 11 so far.

    Where are the other 9?

    LOL

    Thank you.

    I hate that question.

    Why in the world did I stop at 7s in the ones rather than 7s in the ones and the 10s?

    If they simply said count each 7 you see, that would help everyone get the answer right.

    I'm not the crossword puzzle, mystery novel reading type.

    But they did say that. It's in the question. "How many 7's do you pass?"

    Phonetics vs neurological processing.

    When you were counting the sevens you were listening for a two syllable word "seh - ven." Your brain didn't register the third syllable (seh - ven - tee).

    Don't worry though; you're in the majority. And as all civil rights movements have proven, the majority is not always right. icon_wink.gif
