The Finns and their ******* numbering system (need HELP)

Postby synni1 » 2005-08-26, 21:31

The following audio file is a tiny cut-out from a Finnish language course, and I'm 99% sure that my "bill" is CORRECT. I re-calculated and re-added the numbers on the bill, and I always get away with 10 "markkaa" (former currency there) less.

And you? :)

Here's the file: download use SAVE AS!

and here's the bill which I "translated" (just from audio!) p = pullo(a) = bottle(s)

--------------------------
6 p Lappinkultaa
1 p Koskenkorvaa
2 p unkarilaista punaviiniä
--------------------------

Lappinkulta: 7,90 / p [ 6 pcs: 6 x 7,90 = 47,40]
(seitsemän , yhdeksänkymmentä)

Koskenkorva: 91,00 /p (1)
(yhdeksänkymmentäyksi)
Punaviini: 28,00 /p [2 pcs: 28,00 x 2 = 56,00]
(kaksikymmentäkahdeksan)

47,40
91,00
56,00
------
194,40
yhteensä: (sadanyhdeksänkymmentäneljä markan neljäkymmentä)

[? [AUDIO] yhteensä: ("kaksisadanneljä markan neljäkymmentä")] (204,40)

This is 10,00 less. Now, where's the "bug"? :P
Thanks in advance for saving my hair from getting torn out completely! ;)

You forgot about the tip. :twisted:

I listened to the file and counted everything. It really should be 194,40. But CoBB, there's no tipping in Finland. Maybe the saleswoman was just being greedy ;)...

I also corrected a couple of your mistakes in the quote below, in case you wanted that :).

I appreciate corrections to my mistakes in any language.

Thank you VERY VERY much! :D :P

So I was not too drunk when listening to that :)
Thanks :)

And even a "real" Finn speaking up in this thread (he *should* know, shouldn't he :lol: )

No niin. Even language learning audio books can make mistakes.
(and this is a BIG mistake!)
