This question already has an answer here:
Which is more correct to say:
- Five and four are eight
- Five and four is eight
My Logic teacher has sent this to us to figure out. What is written above is all the information we were given. I know that in terms of math neither is correct.
I have tried to disregard that the words are numbers and think about in in a different way. I do not know the rules for the correct use of are and is in the English language. If you can help that would be great.
