```Yeah, you are right, it fooled me. I thought because it answered correctly
the first time and it was fast and confident the second time that these
answers were correctly and I double checked manually and they are nonsense.
I don't understand why it would go through the trouble of answering some
wrong math, when it could say it cannot find the numbers given its
capabilities. It has no problems in refusing to be impolite but it can make
up stuff like this. It is disappointing.
