This is kinda Urgent, i need an answer as soon as possible-
Can anybody think of Math words that add up to 50 if:
a=1
b=2
c=3 etc
Needs to be one word.
Consonants must be added and vowels subtracted eg.
to work out the word "add" you do 4+4-1=4 in any order.

So give that as your answer to her (sounds like a woman). Ask her when you are supposed to actually learn MATHS, and not nonsense.

its a him and he's the most stuffy,irritating,"always right" teacher that ever lived. If he makes a mistake he's too stubborn to correct it and complaining is liable to get a detention, believe me, I've tried!

Complain to the headmaster all the same.
This "exercise" is just nonsense and has nothing to do with maths, nor with coffee-table puzzles.
Put your case cogently forth, it is rather important that this teacher of yours gets an official reprimand for his "work".

mouhaha diffeomorphism, got it on first try

consonant: d+f+f+m+r+s+m =4+12+13+18+16+8+19+13=103

vowels: i+e+o+o+i = 9+5+15+15+9=53

You'd better double check

If he asks what a diffeomorsphism is tell him it's a map btw objects that conserves the topological properties (never done topology b4 but I think that's correct). Like the famous exemple that a donut can be continuously transformed into a cofee mug is because these two objects are diffeomorphic, i.e. there exists a diffeomorphism btw them.

note: there was an error in my post, the word that works is "diffeomorphism", not "phic", but I edited it.

diffeomorphism IS a single word... so how is his bubble burst?

Would that be "mouhaha diffeomorphism", or just "diffeomorphism"???

You ought to complain to the headmaster all the nonetheless.
Your complaint will have all the more force behind it now that you have "solved" that idiot teacher's problem.
He shouldn't get away with this.
