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. Enjoy the last of this series and watch out for tricky answers!

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?

*M = 4, A = 8, T = 3, E = 6*

E x M ÷ A + T

E x M ÷ A + T

M

A

T

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

N x A ÷ T x P

P

A

N

T

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

E - M x L - O

M

O

L

E

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

D ÷ L - N + A

L

A

N

D

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

A - N x L - P

P

L

A

N

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

M ÷ K x N + O

M

O

N

K

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

H - A x R - 3

A

R

C

H

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

E + M x O ÷ P

M

O

P

E

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

N - P ÷ I x E

P

I

N

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

W - N ÷ E + T

N

E

W

T

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

6 x 4 ÷ 8 + 3, which = 6. 6 = E
