## Answers ( No )

Part 1: The simplest way to solve this I think is to set an equation. 4 score is 4x and 7 is +7. So 4x+7=87. Now simply solve.

4x+7=87

-7. -7

4x=80

/4. /4

X=20

—20 years are in a score—

Part 2: start at the year he said it, and go back 87 years. 1863-87=1776.

—he was referring to 1776—

Hope that helped!!
