A couple of one’s, a couple of two’s and a six;
All wrong, all wrong!
If only I thought that the puzzle was one I could fix,
I’d sing a song.
But as I feel sure that it’s rather too much for me,
My voice is muted.
Uncle Bungle’s my name and I fear that you must agree,
I’m rather stupid.
So please, I implore,
Continue the fight,
With tooth and with claw,
With main and with might,
To make wrong sums right.
The figures given are all incorrect. Write out the whole division sum.
