Are you thinking too much?
Going off the track?

Funko is correct, it would have to be...

n1=5
n2=25 etc...

Then 5 = n1 but n5 = 3125.

One orange may equal five segments.
Doesn't follow that one segment equals five oranges.

It's not logical captain.

The equation 1=5 doesn't have any indication that the two things you are measuring are different.

An numerical answer without units and errors is WRONG! as was hammered into my time and time again.

IMO the fact that the numerical values differ each side of the "equals" implies a) that the 2 things being compared are different, and b) what the actual things are, is not relevant to the question.

Only a maths teacher would object ;)

The equals implies that you are using a numerical system where the symbol 5 means the same as the symbol 1.

But in that case 2 can't = 25 because that means 2=21 and that's impossible.
