Johnny replied, “Seven rabbits, Teacher.”
The teacher asked again, “Listen, Johnny If I gave you two rabbits, plus two more rabbits, plus two more rabbits. How many rabbits would you have altogether?”
Johnny smiled, “That’s easy, Teacher, I would have seven.”
“Okay, Johnny,” the teacher said. “Let’s try it a different way. If I gave you two cans of pop, plus two more cans of pop, plus two more cans of pop. How many cans of pop would you have?”
“Six cans.” Johnny said.
“OK,” said the teacher. “Now think of that with this question. If I gave you two rabbits, then two more rabbits, then two more rabbits how many would you have?”
“Seven, Teacher.” Johnny said.
“Why seven?” the teacher asked, exasperated.
Johnny replied, “Because I already have one rabbit at home!”
