Why 80 marks are called letter marks?
Answer: In English alphabet,
L is 12th letter. So, L = 12
E is 5th letter. So, e = 5
T is 20th letter. So t = 20
R is 18th letter. So r = 18
Now calculate the total numbers. That means-
L + e + t + t + e + r
= 12 + 5 + 20 + 20 + 5 + 18
So, 80 marks are called “Letter marks”. Letter marks was the previous evaluation system of education in most of the countries of the world. Now-a-days, exam results are published in grading system in many countries.

or, (4-9/2)2 = (5- 9/2)2
or, 4 – 9/2 = 5 – 9/2
