NAC UYO DARE HITS?


This week's activity is another "break" from standard mathematical problems. Your task is to unscramble each of the following entries...to produce a common mathematical term.

  • TIORA
  • NAREGLECT
  • LAPLARLE
  • MADETIRE
  • TIPCATLUMINIOL
  • MIRPE
  • NILE
  • PENAL
  • SCIEBT
  • NPRDIPCERUALE
  • MUBREN
  • SUARID
  • NIPOT
  • CRILEC
  • YONGOLP
  • COSATEVISIA
  • DITNODIA
  • GANLIRTE
  • TROPNIRPOO
  • GLEAN
  • MICELAD
  • GETIVANE
  • DIPMINTO
  • QUITRALEALE
  • HAGYOREPANT
  • QUITEONA
  • BAREVIAL
  • CERPTEN
  • NOTYEPSHUE
  • TERMPEERI
  • METESUNAMRE
Can you get them all...hope I did not spell any of the words wrong?

NOTE: My compliments to A.K.'s Algebra II classes (Mount Vernon) who solved all of these, and found three errors I had made! (Now corrected)

 


Hint: Play with different letter arrangements...think about the common math words you know.

The last entry is the most difficult perhaps, but an important one...so say I!

 


Solution Commentary: You will know if you are right...and if the answers are provided, no fun is possible.
