# Familiar Quantities and Subjects Technical Challenge

88 K on a P. 27 V of H K. 24 H in a D. Do you remember those kinds of puzzles where you have to figure out what is being referred to? The first one is 88 Keys on a Piano, the second 27 Varieties of Heinz Ketchup, and the last is 24 Hours in a Day. If you like tackling such challenges as associating familiar quantities with their corresponding subjects, then you'll want to check out the list I created below that all have science and engineering themes. If this proves to be popular, I'll do another - hopefully including suggestions from y'all. Good luck. The answers are at the bottom of the page.

• 88 C in the S
• 1 C G in a T V T
• 5/8 C D per F D
• 2 S J in an NPN T
• 3 D per F of 2 (P)
• 6 D per F of 2 (V)
• 16 O in a P
• 2 P C in a L L
• 2080 M-H in a M-Y
• 6 S M
• 180 D around the S C
• 4 Q in a C C G
• 9 P in the S S (I P)
• 17 E P in the S M
• 98 E in the P T (N-O)
• An O per F of 2
• 2 P in a C
• T D in 1948 by B, B and S
• 3 R in a P or T A
• 75 O C I of an F-T C C
• 1 C per S in a H
• 4 S on a Q A
• 3 P on a C
• 2 M L on a D-S P C B

These engineering and science tech-centric jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends and websites across the Internet. I check back occasionally for new fodder, but it seems all the old content is reappearing all over (like this is). The humor is light-hearted and clean and sometimes slightly assaultive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.
