# Letters for Numbers 2

**Letters for numbers means working out sums,** so get your thinking cap on!

In this series of 11-plus verbal reasoning quizzes letters stand for numbers. Work out the correct answer to each sum and choose the correct answer from the four choices available.

The key to these questions is to practise, practise, practise. And when you're done practising, do a little more! If you're not sure what you are supposed to do, have a thorough read of the example given below.

Enjoy the second of this series and watch out for tricky answers! There's even a little bit of Pythagoras' theorem in this quiz. Don't worry, you will learn all about it next year at secondary school. For now, enjoy Letters for Numbers 2.

Please note that these questions assume you have not yet learned BODMAS, so if you have, please don't use BODMAS!

A = 5, B = 14, C = 12, D = 13, E = 3

*A + C - E = ?*

A

B

C

E

Answer: The correct answer is

*B*. If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is

*5 + 12 - 3*, which = 14. 14 = B.
