Best Answer

This common question is ambiguous and needs more detail. Variations of the answer with explanations are below. The most commonly asked form of this question deals with 6's so that is what shall be used in my answer. (If you do not understand, replace the 6's in my answer with 9's.)

[Literal Sense]

1 is the answer because the actual number '6' (by itself) only occurs once.

[The Digit 6]

20 is the answer because, the digit 6 appears 20 times in this example:

6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 76, 86, 96

[The Number 6]

10 is the answer.

These would be the numbers in which '6' occurs:

6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 76, 86, 96

This is because one does not count the digits that represent values other than 6 (i.e. 60, 600, 6000, etc.). So, in this case, the digits with a strikethrough are uncounted. Simply, 6's are only counted in the ones place value.

20, the numbers with sixes are 6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 76, 86, and 96. 66 has two sixes.

For those who disagree claiming the first 6 in 66 does not count, if that one does not count, neither can those in 60, 61, 62, etc., which would leave you with only 10.

6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 60-69, 76, 86, 96.

The literal question - how many 6's? there is only one.

However, if you were to count each 6 in the sequence of 1-100, there are 20.

1 -6, 2 -16, 3 -26, 4 -36, 5 -46, 6 -56, 7 -66, 8 -76, 9 -86, 10 -96

11 -60, 12 -61, 13 -62, 14 -63, 15 -64, 16 -65, 17 -66, 18 -67, 19 -68, 20 -69

There are two 6s in 66...must be counted twice...one for each 6!

20: {7 17 27 37 47 57 67 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 87 97} Two 7s in 77

If you count from 1 to 100, how many 6's will you pass on the way?

10 would be the answer.

If you count from 1 to 100 you pass 11 6's along the way: 6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 66, 76, 86, and 96.

20:818283848586878808182838485868788 (that's 2!)8998

7,17,27,37,47,57,67,70,71,72,73,74,75,76,77(two sevens),78,79,87,97=20 times

You will only pass 1! The reason is You will pass 6 one time not 16 or 26 or any higher its 6! so u will pass it once

The correct answer should be 20:6,16,26,36,46,56,60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68,69,76,86,96(66 is a double 6).

If you count from one to one-hundred, you will pass nineteen six's.
