If you were to want just a little more than 20 nuggets you could get 21 by buying 2 boxes of 6 nuggets and one box of 9 nuggets. However, if you wanted 22 you're outta luck. What is the largest number of nuggets you can't get?

If you order one over that amount, it would be impossible to get (unless you wait for the next order of McNuggets ). ------------------ There are three kinds of people, those who can count and those who cannot.
