I wrote "1/2 of 10 is 5" Duo said i made a mistake. "2 of 10 is 5" that's just weird.

did they suggest the answer to be "2 of 10"? then it would be wrong. regardless, writing 1/2, 5, and 10 in numbers looks closer to a math equation to me here, especially when three words out of five are numbers. in French, we were taught to write numbers under 100 in letters. I won't be arguing that it is/should be the same in English tho. I was just saying.

This isn't fixed. Is anyone reading these messages?

it was really 1/2 that was entered in the list, but for some reason Duo can't read it as 1/2 but 2 only. so I took it off altogether. please spell out the numbers.

I can't hear any difference when the speaker said năm and tám > <
