The King woke up confused one day.  It seems that every time there was a problem in his Kingdom, he appointed a royal commissioner to take care of the problem.  Well, things were getting out of hand.  The King had no idea how many commissioners there were.  He called on his advisors and demanded that every commissioner report to the King in order to be counted.  The next day, the commissioners showed up and several of the Royal Advisors counted them.  Unfortunately, they all
counted just a bit differently and the King was still confused.  Can you figure out why?  Find out in THE KING'S COMMISSIONERS.
