just done 19d . Re the first letter of 1d, when you "times" a number, can this also be shown as "take" ?

Ingenious, jazzy, but I think "take" would be subtract rather than multiply - which might be "by", though that doesn't help.

I'll have another think then, but am I right with the "times" bit ? Still stuck on 22a. Need more coffee

Well, how strange you should hit on the arithmetical sense of takes = multiplied by! I had the vague feeling an hour ago, & have just seen it confirmed on AB, tho' I couldn't find it in Ch. at a quick glance. I'm going to take it now "as read" anyway. Trouble is, grid & clues have still not arrived...................

I have "times" (though of course it isn't pronounced that way)

"Takes" is the only word in the clue that would fit "times" as "back" refers to the reversal, so it must be correct as GK says. Now finished (hurray) . Now to look at jolan's if I have any brain left.

Yes "takes" makes better sense than my original thought of a shortened hyphenated word reversed
