    The real question is, with 10 sea lions, can you really get 2.5 polar bears, or simply 2 and have 2 left over sea lions? In other words, by "Using the same batering system".
    Any 16-year old mongoloid....why is the age of the mongoloid so precisely defined?
    Anyway i think the bartering system means "the value" of the animals, not that anyone acctually plans to send you 2 and one halv of the third polarbear and the rest when you have obtained 2 more sealions...any mongoloid should figure that one out too. Was this asked as a math assignment or more a philosophical question about how one might imagine a bartering system at a zoos
