Andy, I have been constantly confused by "to the nearest 10". Just what does that mean?

If, say the batsman's average is 37.8 - am I right if my answer is ANYWHERE from 27.9 to 47.7, or am I right if my answer is anywhere from 30 to 40, OR is the answer you are looking for actually 40 (because that is the nearest 10)??

So confused.
Maybe

so, would I get it right if I said 37? What about 36?


What if you were to use the phrase "within "x" runs, what is....?"?

35 rounds up to 40.... and no to nearest 10 means, nearest 10, so if you think 36 then say 40 :)

You'll probably be ahead of me then. I guessed eight, and didn't answer two...

Sorry, I didn't answer two either, so guessed at 7.

I knew the Smith/Langer question.
