My mother is typing slow. I hear five taps on the keyboard. How many keys did she press? (I'm being serious!)

    This doesn't seem like a serious question...

    It's not applicable because she could've been banging her head on the keyboard.

    The answer is four. She was typing "pizza".

    She pressed the "Z" key twice. She only pressed four keys.

    John means that she pressed the z button twice, which makes it the same key. So P=1 I=1 Z=1 Z=0 (because its already been said) A=1 So that is four.

    But how are we supposed to know that she typed "pizza"?

    You should've specified she pressed 5 keys in all she typed 4

    Please just close the question. Its spam and it makes no sense plus it doesn't belong in the mathematics section anyway!

    This is only my second attempt at a riddle. My first one was deleted by a mod for being "disgusting".

    And it does require math to solve.

    But you didn't tell us what she was typing in.
