Es uno.

Or, if you are thinking or stumbling... Cuatro menos tres son... ah, es uno...

Dos más tres es igual a cinco.

Dos y tres son cinco.
Dos más tres, cinco.
Dos más tres son cinco.

I can't find it now, but I saw on a Spanish language website about arithmetic, "dos mas tres son cinco, cuatro menos tres son uno". I didn't think that seemed correct. But I also seem to remember a question I've asked before about verb agreement when the subject and object aren't so clear. (Can't find that, either...)

Thanks, all.

Correct. I think I remember something like that being asked from you.

I did this little song to show you that we are at least two who were taught this nursery song. We still haven't heard from Angélica, but I am sure that every kid is taught this. It shows something that is more or less "ingrained" in us. Same thing with the time of day.

I am sure that not everybody understands the agreement you are talking about, but even people who know the diff slips on these two types of stuff...
