Exercise 5.11 - The word "big" is being marked incorrect

Our editors decided to remove the word "big" from Exercise 5.11, because the letter "b" is not taught until later in the book. The word is replaced in the online lab with "eight" and keying "eight" will allow you to be marked correctly. Note: This only effects the 1st printing of the textbook.
