Q161. "Your site says that the Constitution has
been changed 18 times, but there are 27 amendments. What gives?"
A. There are, indeed, twenty-seven amendments to the Constitution.
The first ten, however, were all adopted at once. So, by simple math,
there are twenty-seven amendments, less ten, for seventeen changes. Add the
ten back in as one, and you get eighteen.
