7. 128 INCHES T B L Let H represent the head, B the body, T the tail, and L the total length of the fish. Looking at the problem we are given the following three facts: T= H+ 1B B3=L H = 4 inches It is also true that L = H + B + T H 41 In this equation keep L and substitute for everything else. WL = 8 inches L = 8 X 16inches L = 128 inches Thus we see that the fish was 128 inches long. 4. Are You at Home in Rome? 1.

X + Y + Z + 1 (from the units column) = lO + X, which means that Y + Z = 9. Examine the ten-thousands column and the equation obtained is: X + Y + Z + 1 (from the thousands column) = lOY + X. Substitute Y + Z = 9, and the equation then becomes: 10 = lOY, or Y = 1. From this it follows that Z = 8, and X = 9. 9999 1111 8888 19998 2.
