Start by looking at what you know. T R A C E = 20 C A R E= 18. R+A+C+E = C+A+R+E = 18. T + R +A+C+E = 20 SO..T MUST = 2018 = 2. YOU NOW KNOW THE VALUE OF ONE OF THE LETTERS. Sorry about the caps lock!

No.16: CARE =TRACE  T (i.e 20  T) = 18. Therefore T = 2. CART = TRACE  E (i.e.20  E) = 16 Therefore E = 4. RAT = CART  C Therefore for RAT also to be 16, C must = 0. But if EAR = 13 and E = 4, AR = (13  4) =9 And we know that T = 2, so RAT = 9 + 2 =11. Or have missed something?

What is the smallest possible number of guests at the party? ANS 45 The number of people is a multiple of 9. Lets start with the tables of 7 with 4 empty tables ... lets assume there are only 4 tables. This gives us 24 people, which is not a multiple of 9. Keep adding 7 to the number of people until you arrive at a multiple of 9 and you have the answer.

ANS £280 As we are dealing in percentages, lets assume the original cost of the bike is £100. After a 15% discount, the cost of the bike will be £85. The actual discounted price of the bike is £238. Does that help to calculate the original price?

£238 = 85% Therefore divide 238 by 8.5 Then multiply by 10 = £280

No, it’s not just you, the answer can’t possibly be 16 Well, that's you, me and poor longsuffering DS2, whom I roped in to have a go yesterday evening . OP, is the answer given definitely '16', because there doesn't seem to be any logical way that it can be?
