b = #1 as letters, added together, subtract 2, divided by the 3rd letter as a number in #9, multiplied by 2
c = Take the #4 subtract three, then divide by #7, then add the two numbers together and subtract one
d = Add each number from #6 together, then subtract 1, then add each of those numbers together, then divided by the first letter as a number in the second word from #2
