“What is one mark worth as a percentage?”

G x C = BG

J x C = AF

H x C = JD

I x C = DG

B x C = C

C x C = AC

E x C = DE

A x C = BE

D x C = GD

Each letter stands for the

same number every time it

appears. The table is not

written out in order from 1x up

to 9x.

Which times table is this?

What number does each letter

represent?

How many ways can you find to make 3?

Algebra grid

Let a = 1, b = 2, c = 3.

Complete the grid below with algebraic expressions that give the values in the top grid.

Possible Extensions:

Use all 3 letters in each term.

Use different values; eg d = 4, e = 8, f = 3.

At least 5 must include division
