# A Few Letter Equations

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.

• No. 2 is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for anyone who needs it. Can't get any of the rest
