23a) Is it right angled as well?

31a) should be a distance

For number 9 as the numbers are close I did not add them but guessed 80 then adjusted my answer.

Yes I thought 31a and c are answered in distance?
Can you let me know how you worked out 28? The horses and head question.

List all the multiples of 4 and all the multiples of 2. Then identify which combination of 4s and 2s add up to the total number of legs required. (5x4)+(7x2).

I didn't do it like that. I drew circles for heads and gave them all two legs then looked at how many 'extra' legs I had - this is double the number of horses. [They each need two more]
