Example: What is the answer to the sum below, written as a letter?

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.
  1. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    M = 4, A = 8, T = 3, E = 6
    E x M ÷ A + T
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 6 x 4 ÷ 8 + 3, which = 6. 6 = E
  2. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    P = 4, A = 2, N = 32, T = 8
    N x A ÷ T x P
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 32 x 2 ÷ 8 x 4, which = 32. 32 = N. Interesting number alert! On average, an adult has 32 teeth
  3. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    M = 3, O = 8, L = 2, E = 14
    E - M x L - O
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 14 - 3 x 2 - 8, which = 14. 14 = E
  4. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    L = 9, A = 2, N = 1, D = 72
    D ÷ L - N + A
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 72 ÷ 9 - 1 + 2, which = 9. 9 = L. Interesting number alert! 9 is a square number. In the times tables, it is easy to work out 9 times anything. If you want 7 x 9, take one away from the first number and see how many it will take to make that number up to nine. (6 x 9, take one less = 5, 5 + 4 = 9. Answer 54.) It works every time!
  5. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    P = 11, L = 2, A = 19, N = 4
    A - N x L - P
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 19 - 4 x 2 - 11, which = 19. 19 = A
  6. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    M = 52, O = 5, N = 2, K = 13
    M ÷ K x N + O
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 52 ÷ 13 x 2 + 5, which = 13. 13 = K. Interesting number alert! 13 is a prime number. In our culture, 13 is also considered unlucky. Many hotels and restaurants do not have tables or rooms with the number 13
  7. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    A = 22, R = 2, C = 3, H = 47
    H - A x R - 3
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 47 - 22 x 2 - 3, which = 47. 47 = H
  8. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    M = 3, O = 2, P = 20, E = 17
    E + M x O ÷ P
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 17 + 3 x 2 ÷ 20, which = 2. 2 = O. Interesting number alert! Two is the only even prime number
  9. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    P = 20, I = 5, N = 45, E = 9
    N - P ÷ I x E
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 45 - 20 ÷ 5 x 9, which = 45. 45 = N. In geometry, the name of a 45-sided shape is known as a tetracontakaipentagon
  10. What is the answer to the sum, written as a letter?

    N = 8, E = 17, W = 42, T = 6
    W - N ÷ E + T
    If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is 42 - 8 ÷ 17 + 6, which = 42. 42 = N
