## It's O. the T. of M. T.

This week's activity is another "break" from standard mathematical problems. Your task is to determine the missing words in the common phrase, hinted at via each word's initial letter.

For example, the clue "26 = L. of A." means "26 = Letters of Alphabet." Got it...Go to it?

• 7 = D of W
• 1001 = A.N.
• 12 = S. of Z.
• 54 = C. in the D. [with the J.]
• 9 = P. in the S.S.
• 88 = P.K.
• 13 = S. on the A.F.
• 32 = D.F. at which W. F.
• 90 = D. in a R.A.
• 200 = D. for P.G. in M.
• 8 = S. on a S.S.
• 3 = B.M. [S.H.T.R.]
• 4 = Q. in a G.
• 24 = H. in a D.
• 1 = W. on a V.
• 5 = D. in a Z.C.
• 57 = H.V.
• 11 = P. on a F.T.
• 1000 = W. that a P. is W.
• 29 = D. in F. in L.Y.
• 64 = S. on a C.
• 40 = D. and N. of the G.F.
• 20 = L. on a F.P.T.S.
• 800 = P. in M.D.
• 10 = P. in B.
• 2000 = L. under the S.
• 2 T.P. and a P. in a P.T.
• 15 B. plus a C.B. in F.
• 1.2 is not an I.
• 100 D.N.
• 9 P. in the S.S.
• 50 P.O.S.
• 47 L. in the L.E.W.
Can you get them all...?

Hint: The difficulty varies...so skip around, getting confidence from the easier ones.
