Match your answer and its corresponding letter to the number answers that complete the trivia answer. (If you need to, you can rewrite these questions in a different form—stacking addition problems or using long division, for example.)

  1. 17 + –4 = W
  2. 174 + 58 = L
  3. 1,023 + 75 = E
  4. 99 – 16 = C
  5. –3 – – 5 =I
  6. –59 – 18 = L
  7. 9 × 7 = A
  8. –15 × –3 = S
  9. 100 × –3 = O
  10. 125 ÷ 25 = R
  11. –81 ÷ –9 = R
  12. –258 ÷ 3 = L
