AbrasionsLetter Equations are well known phrases or facts where the key words have been replaced with the first letter of that word. These are often in the form of an equation, which contain a number, an = sign and the rest of the obscured phrase or fact.
Listed below are a list of Letter Equations with most of the numerical element removed.
Below them are a series of algebraic equations.
Given the limited information supplied, can you work back from the answer to complete the missing numbers and letter equations?
T) 48 = H in 2 D
I) ? = D in 3 W
M) 240 = M in 4 H
E) ? = S in 2 M
F) ? = M in 3 Y
L) = (M / T) * E
Y) = F - I
S) = L / Y
What is the completed answer to all parts if S = 40?
HintRead down the letters for a clue
AnswerKeep in mind that the letters read down as Time Flys ( I know the spelling is incorrect)
T) 48 = Hours in Two Days
I) 21 = Days in Three Weeks
M) 240 = Minutes in Four Hours
E) 120 = Seconds in Two Minutes
F) 36 = Months in Three Years
L) = (240 / 48) * 120 = 600
Y) = 36 - 21 = 15
S) = 600 / 15 = 40
