INTERGALACTIC INTEGERS - LEVEL 2

Contained in each block is a letter along with its assigned value. Sum the values of the letters of each word into their total numerical value. Perform the designated operations to find a total value for the terms in each problem.

Example: radio - wave = (8+12-13-1+10) - (2+12+6+1) = -5

 12 a 1 b -2 s 6 v -5 p -9 z 0 h -1 i -3 m 5 u -8 j 7 g -4 - 3 q 2 w 13 y -6 e * 9 k -12 t -13 d -10 f -7 n 11 x 10 o -11 c 8 r 4 l

1. star - dust = ?
2. gravity - neutron = ?
3. gamma-ray + X-ray = ?
4. light - hole = ?
5. quasar - galaxy = ?
6. universe + remnant = ?
7. light-year + mass = ?
8. jets - gas = ?
9. binary + matter + orbit = ?
10. black - dense - radio = ?

CHALLENGE: (Spaces between words have no value.)

1. Active Galactic Nuclei - event horizon = ?
2. companion star + Schwarzschild radius = ?
3. escape velocity - accretion disk = ?
4. supermassive black hole - stellar black hole = ?
5. gravitational pull + electromagnetic spectrum = ?
