Numerical Style TieBreakers
These questions are designed to be used as tie-breakers and as such it's unlikely anybody will know the precise answer.
I'd advise asking each team involved in the tie break to write their answer down to avoid the team going second 'hedging their bets' by simply going one higher or lower than the guess from the first team.
It's also a good idea to have a calculator handy to work our who's closest if both teams are some way off!
