## If the name's a praeblem Annony...

...I can offer some alternatives

• Large Number First
• Odd Number Ordering
• Inverted Estimates
• Witches Brew

Any takers? Guybrush20X6 23:27, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

I say either the current name, #1, or #3. 23:33, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
"Larger Number First" or "Inverted Estimates" might be better since the examples don't all include "or". "Odd Number Ordering" makes it sound like we're talking about odd numbers (as opposed to even numbers), so I wouldn't go with that. — It's dot com 01:41, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

The suntan example is a little off too, saying "at least" that way isn't that unusual. -174.62.238.201 02:35, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
