It appears that you are stating this, correctly I believe, to deaf ears. For reasons I don't understand, some people just don't seem to want to believe it.Because, again, the answer works out to 8exactly, no rounding, no fractions. It would be a fabulous coincidence if that happened by accident due to a misinterpretation. The riddle author has chosen the numbers carefully to arrive at the answer without any math more complicated than 3-digit arithmetic.
