Here are 6 Letter Equations (6 LE). Can you guess what the letters stand for in these equations. The letters are the first letters to the word.

E.g. Question= 60 S in a M. Answer= 60 seconds in a minute

1) 9 P of SA

2) 1600 PA

3) 54 C in A

4) 10 DS

UPDATE: 5) 135 SS in R

HINT for 5): ∞ R L to R

6) 32 B of L

I am not sure what the most appropriate or correct tags would be for this sort of puzzle. Also, I'm not 100% certain that they are called letter equations.

I think no. 3 is: (edited)

54 countries in Africa

The hint for no. 5 is:

All roads lead to Rome

So the answer to the question is:

135 Spanish Steps in Rome
