I understand une dizaine means 10 or so. As do all the other examples in the lesson. Therefore, what is the difference with the last example?
Je veux deux douzaines de pommes.... Why does this also not mean:
I want two dozen or so/or approximately - apples> ?
It's explained in the lesson:
"As in English, douzaine (dozen) means 12 rather than being an approximate number, but the construction is the same as for approximate numbers."
