Six of One

The expression, "Six of one, half a dozen of another," is commonly used to indicate that two alternatives are essentially equivalent, because six and a half dozen are equal quantities. But are "six dozen dozen dozen" and "a half dozen dozen dozen" equal?


  1. Six dozen = 60
    Half dozen = 6

    so just because you add "dozen dozen" at the end of the two doesn't change it.

    Six Dozen (6*12=60) Dozen (12) Dozen (12)(12*12=144) = 8640

    Half Dozen (6) Dozen (12) Dozen (12) = 864
