RE: How's this for ambiguous?
The fundamental ambiguity is the title, which needs some context.

Are you reading "Math Word Problems" in a Maths class? = make the numbers clear
Give {Joe and Sandra} is obviously 4 loaves moved, and Give {Joe,Sandra} is obviously 8 loaves moved, isn't it?

Are you reading "Math Word Problems" in an English class? = discuss the parsing and ambiguity in the English.

Are you reading "Math Word Problems" in a Computing Class? Is there a Microsoft Word Bug? Smile
Or do you need the equation editor plug-in?
