Number answers and defining a correct answer range

“Count it up” and “estimate the amount” type of tasks expect a number answer from  players. How to add a range that is considered correct to reward also the folks who get it close enough? When setting up the number answer type of question like “How many faces you can spot on this picture?” you have to write to an answer field the range.

For example, in the picture above is supposed to be 13 faces but you might want to reward anyone reaching 11 or vice versa- super eager players counting lets say 15.

In this case you have to write to the correct answer field:
11-15

This comes handy also when players have to count up objects in a real life. In some situations the outcome is debatable. Like the amount of strains on a staircase- especially the long ones 🙂

This also works with minus count. So if the question is about minuses, for example -20 to -18 you can define the range
-20–18
Notice the extra – in the middle, no spaces!
