Not a maths problem!



This is not a maths problem!

If I earn €1200 and a friend of mine earns €1800, which is the correct way of expressing the difference in our salaries?

  1. My friend earns a half more than me
  2. I earn half as much as my friend
  3. My friend earns half as much again as I do
  4. My friend earns twice as much as I do
