### When can you?

When can you add two to eleven and get one as the correct answer?

1. Twice a day... When it is 11:00am or pm. Add two and you get 1:00

2. I guess I'd say -5. Take two of those, which together equal -10, and add them to 11, that gives you 1.

3. Nice interpretation andy! I never would have thought of that.

I was going for adding 2 hours to 11 to get 1.

4. Of course I was just being a smart aleck.

5. What do you add to 11 to get one baker's dozen?

6. jonathan, do you mind if I post this as a question on Monday? I'm not sure anyone will see it here.

7. i thought jonathan's point was just that it's another answer to your riddle...you can add TWO to 11 to get ONE baker's dozen.

8. Agreeing with earlier posts, sort of

Anytime you work mod 12. though i guess then you're talking congruence

9. when you put 2 cannibals in a room with 11 people you usually only end up with one.
