Previous questions have allowed me to use numerals in answers (e.g 30 for treizeci), so why is "The man is 54 years old" not accepted here?

I got caught with that too

Now twice! I'm slow to learn

Why was it 'Maria are șaisprezece ani' (without 'de'), but 'Bărbatul are cincizeci și patru de ani' (with 'de') here?

In Romanian, you use "de" when the number is 20 or higher. No "de" with the numbers from 0 thorough 19.

It should be accepted. I'll report it.

'The man is 50 4 years old'. I am beginning to despair at remembering rubbish correct answers like these so that I can continue!!!
