In this quiz letters stand for numbers. Work out the correct answer to each sum and choose the correct answer from the four choices available. There will always be a code letter for each of the four numbers, and the question will have 3 or four letters in it.

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

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.

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

A

B

C

E

Answer: The correct answer is

1.

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

D = 9, T = 18, N = 6, Z = 3

*D + N - Z + N*

D = 9, T = 18, N = 6, Z = 3

D

T

N

Z

2.

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

*B = 6, C = 12, R = 18, V = 2*

C x V - B

C x V - B

B

C

R

V

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is * 12 x 2 - 6*, which = 18. 18 = R

3.

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

*F = 7, W = 6, O = 12, R = 4*

F - W + R + F

F - W + R + F

F

W

O

R

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is * 7 - 6 + 4 + 7*, which = 12. 12 = O. Interesting number alert! 7 is a funny number. If we look at the factors from 7, they add up to interesting numbers: 2 x 7 = 14 (adding up to 5) 3 x 7 = 21 (adding up to 3) 4 x 7 = 28 (adding up to 10 as well as 1 + 0 = 1) 5 x 7 = 35 (adding up to 8) 6 x 7 = 42 (adding up to 6). Can you guess what comes next? It always equals two less than the number before it

4.

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

*H = 16, S = 14, M = 12, P = 2*

H + M ÷ P

H + M ÷ P

H

S

M

P

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is * 16 + 12 ÷ 2 *, which = 14. 14 = S. Interesting number alert! 16 is a square number (4 x 4)

5.

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

*C = 31, G = 1, Q = 8, J = 4*

C + G ÷ Q + J

C + G ÷ Q + J

C

G

J

Q

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is * 31 + 1 ÷ 8 + 4*, which = 8. 8 = Q. Interesting number alert! 31 is a prime number

6.

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

*E = 5, M = 12, D = 4, C = 1*

M - E + D + C

M - E + D + C

E

M

D

C

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is *12 - 5 + 4 + 1*, which = 12. 12 = M. Interesting number alert! 12 is a number where, if you add up the numbers it is made of, it equals 3. Double it and add those numbers (24 gives us 6) and it equals three more than the first two numbers added up to. No matter which factor you use, this works. Try it!

7.

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

*A = 30, D = 25, C = 65, B = 3*

A x B - C

A x B - C

A

D

C

B

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is *30 x 3 - 65*, which = 25. 25 = D

8.

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

*F = 9, X = 17, G = 4, K = 2*

X - F ÷ G + K

X - F ÷ G + K

X

F

G

K

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is *17 - 9 ÷ 4 + 2*, which = 4. 4 = G. Interesting number alert! 17 is a prime number!

9.

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

*R = 81, S = 9, T = 10, U = 1*

R ÷ S + U ÷ T

R ÷ S + U ÷ T

R

S

U

T

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is *81 ÷ 9 + 1 ÷ 10*, which = 1. 1 = U. Interesting number alert! 81 is not only a square number (9 x 9) but its two numbers also add up to 9!

10.

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

*J= 13, Q = 9, D = 23, P = 117*

J x Q - P + D

J x Q - P + D

J

Q

P

D

If we translate all the letters into numbers, our new sum is *13 x 9 - 117 + 23*, which = 23. 23 = D
