In Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), Hank and his daughter Hope learn that Janet has been using Scott as her antenna:

Hank: I'm tracking your signal using subatomic frequencies... between point two and point nine.

Scott (as Janet): I'd narrow it to four and six.

Hank: That's too tight. We could miss you.

Scott (as Janet): Look at us squabbling again.

Hank: Fine. All right, between three and seven.

What is the significance of "sums to 10" in this scene?

  • 9
    2 + 9 = 11, not 10, so I don’t think there is any significance. Basically, after the first, the rest are two numbers equidistant from 0.5 which will always sum to 10. Apr 20, 2019 at 2:23

There is none.

They're just discussing intervals, some more narrow than others. Hank suggests [0.2, 0.9], and Scott suggests something smaller, [0.4, 0.6]. Since Hank thinks that's too narrow, they compromise on [0.3, 0.7]. The intervals are approximately centered around 0.5 and equidistant from there.
