We all know the radical array of answers to the old chestnut inquiry: “How long is a piece of string?”
My question for you today peels off that ball o’ twine to ask:
A stranger from afar asks you to mail them “a piece of string” — but you are unable to ask any follow up questions — how much string would send the stranger as your fulfillment of that request?
Please explain your answer and provide the length of your “piece of string.” No fractions are allowed and that includes the entire ball of string — or twine! — as your response.
You must make a non-fractional value judgment and then give us the logic of that determination to receive full credit for your answer.
