Below you will find three letter equations. Once you figure the answer to each equation, use those answers to figure out the answer to the fourth and final letter equation. Good luck!

1. O + F + C + S + B = WWF

2. H + T + TB + B + T = BF

3. SD + BD + X = PF

Take the answers from the equations above to figure out the fourth and final equation.

4. WWF + BF + PF = CB


1. Oboe + Flute + Clarinet + Saxophone + Bassoon = Woodwind Family

The hint for this equation states that "some family members require reeds". Flutes do not use reeds to produce sound, while all other instruments in this group do.

2. Horn + Trumpet + Trombone + Baritone + Tuba = Brass Family

The hint for this equation states that they require a "buzz" to get going. This is because you need to buzz your lips together to produce a sound.

3. Snare Drum + Bass Drum + Xylophone = Percussion Family

The hint for this equation suggests that family members need to be struck to get going. This means each one of the instruments listed require that you hit them with a stick to produce a sound. (The list of Percussion instruments provided in this equation is by no means a complete list.)

4. Woodwind Family + Brass Family + Percussion Family = Concert Band

This is the standard instrumentation for most concert bands.
