Write three names for 10.(Now with supposed answer)

This was the question on a first grade math homework sheet. The rest of the sheet consisted of some addition and subtraction problems, and one word problem.

So I ask you to answer this question. I'll tell you why later.


***Update***


As far as "three names for 10" is concerned...I don't think they woudl do that to 1st graders

Think again....that was the exact wording of the question.

According to the teacher the answer is:

2+8=10
5+5=10
12-2=10

and so on....

I was in the camp of ten, deca, diez, etc.....

So when my son asked for help on this one I told him to write names (as he thought he should do also). When I got the sheet back yesterday it had a big question mark and the "Correct" numerical examples.


It just kinda rubbed me wrong because this teacher tends to really come down on her students when they miss something.
