The houses are numbered from 20, going up in even numbers.

Jane lives next to Rishi.

Hilary lives at number 28.

Sam lives between Rishi and Hilary.

A Jane lives at number 26.

B Carl lives at number 22.

C Sam lives at number 24.

D Carl lives at number 20.

E Rishi lives at number 28.

In the following questions, the letters stand for numbers. Work out the sum and then write the answer as a letter in the brackets.

Example: If A = 1, B = 2, C = 4, D = 10

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

B x C + B = ( D )

59. If A = 6, B = 7, C = 3, D = 24, E = 4

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

B x E - D = ?

60. If A = 35, B = 4½, C = 21, D = 36, E = 2

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

C ÷ E + B + C = ?

61. If A = 4, B = 24, C = 5, D = 32, E = 3

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

C + E x A = ?

62. If A = 10, B = 15, C = 4, D = 25, E = 5

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

D - A x E ÷ B = ?

63. If A = 6, B = 3, C = 30, D = 18, E = 12

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

E ÷ B + A x B = ?

64. If A = 5, B = 8, C = 12, D = 4, E = 3

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

C + E ÷ A = ?

65. If A = 3¼, B = 5¼, C = 4¼, D = ¾, E = 1¼

Write the answer to this sum as a letter:

C - A + C - E = ?
