The Teaser

Naturally, 7 beats six by 1.
And, of course, 700 beats 600.
Why then, does 71 not beat 67?

 

The Solution

71 does not beat 67 because the others beat their counterparts based on the NUMBER OF SYLLABLES in the number when sounded out. SEVEN beats SIX in syllables, by 1. SEVEN-HUNDRED beats SIX-HUNDRED by 4 syllables vs. 3. However, SEVENTY-ONE and SIXTY-SEVEN are equal in syllables, with 4 each.
