Mr Double Jim Doughnuts was a doubly hopeless Double Agent,He didn’t earn enough money to even pay the rent ! When it came to making invasion plans, you’d be better off with a handyman, who’d better leave nothing to chance. He got in such a jam – that his spy – catching turned a sham. He meant to go to MI5 – but he ended up in West Ham ! He lost his camera, his spy manual, too. Now when it came to double dealing, he didn’t know what to do ! When his boss was looking for the culprit who’d made the clumsy mistake, Double Agent Doughnuts, of course, was off on his coffee break ! Although awarded postumously for his bravery, Double Agent Doughnut’s camera still had no battery ! To see what the matter could be, the Prime Minister called for a meeting, on Saturday,”What’ve YOU been upto !?”, was his greeting, before he’d left, Jim Doughnuts had broken the central heating ! He plot so often, his head got in a spin, when it came to solving puzzles, he didn’t know where to begin. Double Agent Doughnuts was known far and wide, for dropping important briefcases, with even more important documents inside !

4/ 1 : 5 ; one – fifth ; 20 % ; 0.2

5/ 6 + 7 + 3 + 4 + 2 = 22

6/ £ 9.99 – (£9.99 / 100 x 60 = £5.99) = £4

7/ 1000 + 1000 / 2 = 1500
