An anagram is a word or phrase whose letters can be re-arranged to make some other word or phrase.

*For example:*

**triangle**

*is an anagram of*.

**integral**Here are 7 anagrams to be solved - each makes a single word which is used in mathematics

**laces - scale**

**Vi died - divide**

**crust in boat - subtraction**

**Dina do it - addition**

**cat liver - vertical**

**use ream - measure**

**Sam, cheat Tim - Mathematics**

**5th and 6th**

Use the ten digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and use each digit once and once only.

Divide the ten digits into two groups of five, and then arrange the digits in each group of five to make a multiplication sum.

It could be done like this:

0, 1, 5, 6, 9 used to make 106 x 59

*(which is 6254)*

2, 3, 4, 7, 8 used to make 437 x 82

*(which is 35834)*

*and the two multiplication sums have different answers.*

Find a way that makes the answers to both multiplication sums the same.

3485x2 and 6970x1 (for smallest possible)

or

915x64 and 732x80 (for largest possible)
