In base 10 math, the answer

In base 10 math, the answer is 12. We all know that.

But... In programming, we use binary, octal, hexadecimal all the time. If for some strange reason people always had 11 fingers, it's quite possible that 3x4 would be 11, in base 11 math.

00:000000000000100000000
10:012345678901234567890
11:0123456789a0123456789

As you can see where the 1 is on top line, 3x4 = 12 and 3x4 = 11

Now if I were a student and that was my answer, I'd want the proper points for it. :)

Blah.
