Joke of the Month Little Billy was in maths class and the teacher said Billy if I give you two cats plus another two cats and another two cats how many cats do you have? Little Billy replied I will have seven. The teacher said sorry that's the wrong answer I will say it again, if I give you two cats plus two cats plus another two cats how many cats do you have? Billy replied seven, the teacher said ok let me try it this way if I give you two apples plus two apples and another two apples how many apples do you have? He said six. Well done she said, let's try this again, if I give you two cats plus another two cats plus two more cats how many do you have? Billy again said seven. The teacher was baffled, how did you come up with this answer? Billy replied well I already have a cat at home.
