As he is approaching a festival, Thomas notices an attendant who allows people to enter without a ticket. To the first visitor the attendant says “18,” whereupon the visitor responds “8” and is let in. To the second visitor the attendant says “14,” to which this visitor also responds “8” and is then admitted. To the third visitor the attendant says “8,” whereupon this visitor responds “5” and is also admitted. Now Thomas has stepped up to the gate, and the attendant says “7.” What number must Thomas respond with in order to be admitted to the festival without a ticket?
