    Well, the answer is 21 of course.

    Latin for nine is non as in nonagon. ninesided.
    So I guess base 9 would be a non base.

    I see you're saying the "presumed" dad is asking, giving the numbers in base 10, and the kid is answering in base 9.

    I was thinking it from the other perspective, being 9 can't be in base 9, so the kid is thinking the question is asked base 12, and is answering in Base 10 for the dad.

    Hint: Base 2 doesn't contain the 'symbol' 2, base 16 doesn't contain the symbol '6', so does base 9 contain the symbol '9'?

    <sigh> - he answered 21 - and the symbols '21' do not contain any 9.

    So he could have meant his answer as being from base 3 onwards.

    So does that mean being able to think in base 9 is just non sense?

    Re: You's Stupid

    Well, everybody avoided saying 19. So, given this group, everybody immediately jumped to an assumption of the question that resulted in ANY answer other than 19, because 19 is "just what they'd be expecting us to do".

    All questions are contextual. If the context isn't provided, then nearly any answer is right in some context. Occam's Razor would hold that 19 is the most right answer for the initial question.

    Occam's Bong would hold that Niya had the most right answer on this one.

    10+9 = 119

    Because:

    a = 10
    b = 9

    c = abs(a - b) * 10^(abs(floor(ln(a+b))) + a + b

    Example:

    c = abs(10 - 9) * 10^(abs(floor(ln(10+9))) + 10 + 9
    c = 1 * 10^(abs(floor(2,94439)) + 19
    c = 1 * 10^(abs(2)) + 19
    c = 1 * 10^2 + 19
    c = 1 * 100 + 19
    c = 119

    This would certainly make the adder component of the CPU a little more complicated.
