Hi!! You may substract 2 from 32 only once!
Why because after subtracting 2 from 32 once you no longer have 32 but you have just 30

Well, you can only subtract 2 from 32 once. Once you've done that, then you'd be subtracting 2 from 30, then 28...etc.

If you only want to work w/ positive #s, 2 can be substracted frrom 32 16 times till you get to 0:
30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 0

Otherwise you can subtract 2 from 32 an unlimited # of times. Just go into negatives:
10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 0, -2, -4, -6, -8, -10




No, u dont understand because if 32-2=30 then u want to get 0 because u cant because u then have to subtract from 30, do u get it?

Lol in response to:

"How many cookies can you eat on an empty stomach?"

After you eat one cookie, it's still going down your throat so its not in your stomach yet ^___^ so you can eat another cookie. Strange logic, but whatever.
