Would 'we are five' (meaning five years old) not work here? It was rejected.
We are five - Vi er fem. As in there are five of you (ordering a table at a restaurant, how many will there be seated: We are five). Or there are two boys that both are five years (How old are you? We are five).
How much time before the dam project must be finished? We have five years.
Thanks. I thought it might have been the equivalent of some other languages where age is something that you have, rather than are: "I have five years" from Italian (for example) would be understood and accepted in English as "I am five".
Who thought of David Bowie? (My mom introduced me to this song, now Iove it!)
