1 or 25? The answer to these is always an "oh how silly" response from me :tongue2:

No? So your saying 2 cannot be subtracted from 50 an infinite/arbitrary number of times?

"What am I thinking" might be a more suitable title

no it can't be subtracted from a 50, infinite number of times.

Your bad grammer appears forced, in which case the answer is clearly not worth guessing.

50 - 2 = 48
50 - 2 = 48
50 - 2 = 48
...
Infinitely many times.

well ok here's the answer,

Only once. Because after you subtract 2 from a 50, it becomes 48. So the next subtraction is from 48 and not from 50.
