LOST in Translation

When students say they tried ''really hard'', I like to know how much.

Obviously, the answer given by the student in the first problem is an approximation to the best of his ability.
The second one would have L'O'S'T' somewhere off the plane, but L"O"S"T" would come back down to reality.

My initial instinct was to have a whole bunch (six? seven?) crazy translations and have the last last one messed up on purpose, but I wasn't sure that people would pick up on that or yell at me for making a "mistkae".

I meant to do that
