If you MUST have "52 C in a P (WJs)" then, for consistency, you should at least say "52 Cs in a P", and "24 Hs in a D", "26 Ls of the A", etc.

And anyway it should be "26 L in the E A". There are other alphabets, you know, and not all of them have only 26 letters.

How about "..   40 D B, W F A C A E"  

And 14 should be "15 P in a R U F T" - some people play R L.

This puzzle originally consisted of 24 "equations" by Will Shortz, printed
in the May-June 1981 issue of Games magazine, with an acknowledgement to
Morgan Worthy.  Games ran several followups in subsequent issues, and
reported that people kept resubmitting the puzzle to them, sometimes as
original work!  Many people have now added to the list of equations.
The 24 original ones are starred (*) below.
