I get different versions of the correct answer, based I suppose on my approach. Regardless, it's confusing.

Duolingo makes some effort to show you the accepted answer "closest" to what you entered. But the way it determines "closest" is anything but clear, and often it might just as well be random.

"Twenty-two" is correctly written with a hyphen, no?

It's always fun when the auto number-conversion system pops out with something like, "I need 100 and 20 2 pesos" as a suggested "right" answer :)
