14 The Equation Analysis Test (Frequently Asked Puzzles - general)

==> equations <== [language/part1]
    26 = L of the A  (Letters of the Alphabet)
     3 = BM(SHTR)    (Blind Mice - See How They Run)
    27 = NOEBTCGPWTCAAAAPOTBOEOEWEOWTBUAEAAG

The original form of the Equation Analysis Test was first printed in the
May/June 1981 issue of _Games_ Magazine, and has perhaps become the most
photocopied quiz in history. Posting the original quiz (which includes
the first two examples) is unnecessary, as the archive includes all of the
originals plus several hundred extra equations. If you come up with your
own set, it is on-topic to post them, although you want to be sure to
follow-up with your solutions within a week because many of them are hard
to guess with certainty.
