1. ## Self Descriptive Numbers

OK, So I'm helping hit Jnr with his homework and this has me stumped!

We need a text that describes a number and used the same amount of characters (no numbers, spaces, symbols or punctuation). So:
8 = TWOCUBED
20=FOURMULTIPLIEDBYFIVE

We have worked out all of them from 8 to 20 apart from the number 9! It's driving us nuts! Can anyone come up with one?

2. PISQUARED is the closest I've got so far :-)

Try using the LEN function in excel

Indeed, that's how I got most of the others in an excel spreadsheet. PISQUARED might do it I guess, close enough with some rounding down

5. The best I've come up with so far are a bit of a cheat

SIXNTHREE (N is a poor abbreviation of AND)

oh and

TRITHREES
