My son came home with this exercise and I thought it was a lot of fun...only get stuck on one....let's see how well you do!

Can you figure out which words are missing from each number fact? Use the capital letters to help you.

1. 12 I in a F (answer: 12 Inches in a Foot)
2. 365 D in a Y
3. 24 H in a D
4. 3 W on a T
5. 52 W in a Y
6. 100 C in a M
7. 4 Q in a G
8. 16 O in a P
9. 60 M in an H
10. 10 Y in a D
11. 26 L of the A
12. 8 T on a O
13. 4 Q in a D
14. 60 S in a M
15. 100 Y in a C
16. 50 S on the U.S.F

Okay, I think I have them all..

I was a little stuck on two of them, but I think I figured them out.

Amy, should we PM you with the answers or something?

I don't know...I'm not very savvy with the PM's on this website...I'd say give yourself a gold star if they all make sense and seem to fit! Now if you had to use your creativity to make it work (ie #2 365 dishes in a yurt) then you should sleep on it and then ask if you still can't come up with the answer. Does that sound fair? I thought it was a fun little brain teaser.

I think I've got them all, there are a couple I'm not sure of, you do use some different terms than we do here. I love this sort of thing, thanks for making my brain work this early on a Sunday!

Most of them don't make sense to me. Interesting though. TFS.

I got stuck on three of them - but got the rest pretty easily once I looked at the first example. Thanks for the brain exercise. I think maybe I should get a B-. :)

Belle-try to message me (or rather, I'll try to receive it and respond~therein lies the challenge!) with the ones you're stuck on...some of them are references to standard measurements vs metric, so they may be more unfamiliar to those that use metric.

#4 and 12 took me the longest. But once I stopped thinking so hard, they came to me.

Same for me Tiza - I was stuck on #4 and #12 - still not sure I have them exactly right. The rest were pretty easy.
