"Five bicycles were torched " "four other bicycles in a nearby condo parking space were also set alight."

So that's a total of 9...good thing it wasn't cars.

No need to downvote.

Math, I am heavily grilled at.

*According to police, a passerby noticed a bike(one)on fire in a parking lot outside an apartment building at around 2:20 a.m. Sunday, Fuji TV reported. About 20 minutes later, four other bicycles in a nearby condo parking space were also set alight*.

Dead easy, often wonder why posters ask for clarification when all the info is in the article, could cite more examples.

Increasingly I have to correct people when they are quoting news or having read something as they just skim stuff and remember it wrong and are vehement they are right.
