    Tens of thousands

    Dear Sir,

    Tens of thousands took part in protest in Cairo.

    I failed to guess the actual sum of tens of thousands. Please help.

    Re: Tens of thousands

    Somewhere between 20,000 and 90,000.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
