Is "belasan" 1 dozen or multiple dozens?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Femmy813541

Belasan is a number within the range of 11-19 (words that have "belas" in it).

Femmy, you're correct.

So it should be noted that there is no word that translates belasan into English. An English speaker might say '10 to 20' to give an approximation.

Other translations: lusin - dozen selusin (satu lusin) - one dozen lusinan - dozens

"meja tulis" should be accepted for desk
