# Thread: Word Equations

1. ## Word Equations

These equation teasers will give you a quick mental workout. You may not solve all of them the first time you look at them, but you might finish them after you think about them for a while.
Each equation is comprised of initials that you must replace with words that will make them correct. For example, 26=L of the A, is 26=Letters of the Alphabet.

Solve:

1. 7=W. of the A.W.
2. 1,001=A.N.
3. 12=S. of the Z.
4. 54=C. in a D. (with the J.)
5. 9=P. in the S.S.
6. 88=P.K.
7. 13=S. on the A.F.
8. 32=D. at which W.F.
9. 18=H. on a G.C.
10. 90=D. in a R.A.
11. 9=J. of the S.C.
12. 10=D in a T.N. ( including the A.C. )
13. 7=D with S.W.
14. 30=S. over T.
15. 8=D. a W. ( in the B.S. )
16. 15=M. on a D.M.C. ( hint: Yo Ho Ho!! )
17. 4 + 20=B.B. in a P.
18. 9=S. in T.-T.-T.
19. 3=S. Y. O. at the O. B. G.
20. 5=T. on a C. ( including the S. in the T. )

Agreed Rory - it is not correct for UK!

12. ## Re: Word Equations

Rory and Steve. You answered correctly for the last 2 questions! Well done.

As for #12; I'm sure that would be the case in many parts of the world. However, that was one of the questions in the puzzle I found, so I simply left it there.

Hmmm...good point. Maybe the question should have been <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">32=D.F at which W.F </span hide>

I'm surprised J.G = T.L.P didn't notice that!
