Indeed. Rebecca had a similar problem when we were apartment-hunting. She transposed the T and R in quarto (1/4) to quattro (4) which made a bit of a difference to the amount of wine she was ordering :-)

Oh numbers are the worst, I speak Italian quite well but I can't count in it at all and yes quarto and quattro - too confusing!
