Margo has 5, and they have 11 together.
The answer is 11 blocks in all. Ron has 6 which is 1 more than Margot's 5 blocks, so together they have 11 blocks. Easy peasy!
Quoting MaineMammax2: Unless I'm missing something I believe the total is 11. Margo has 1 less than 6 totaling 5. 6+5=11.

Ron has 1 more than Margo, which means Margo has 5, while Ron has 6...add them together and you get 11.
That's definitely part of the issue.
Comparison words work differently in different languages.
Ron has one more than Margo so she has five.
They have 11 in all.
