Oh, I see... That wasn't clear to me, becauseI saidter totidem saltem, to mean 'at least three times as many (as 12, that is 36).

I'll grant that, but let's just call it a 'riddle-within-a-riddle'.That wasn't clear to me, becausesaltemwas so far from the number it was meant to modify.

Does anyone qualify with 'at least' when he means precisely that number?there's usually a possibility for it to be that exact number

'Wow, what a turnout. There's at least a hundred people here!' = 'I'm certain there are more than a hundred people here.'

No, but few people disguise such statements in a mathmatical operation'Wow, what a turnout. There's at least a hundred people here!' = 'I'm certain there are more than a hundred people here.'

And we wouldn't want anything disguised in a riddle.No, but few people disguise such statements in a mathmatical operation
