Q.E.D (02/18)

Middle of Q.E.D – I can not begin to tell you how many times this shows up in a crossword. However, I can tell you that I never remember what it stands for.

(Perhaps by posting it here I will never forget again.)

Q.E.D. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase quod erat demonstrandum,which literally means “that which was to be demonstrated”

(it also means that 2 DOWN is erat)

Here are some other acronyms solved:

FREDDIE MAC Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation

FANNIE MAE Federal National Mortgage Association

GUDD Gold up, Dollar Down

NASDAQ National Association Of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation

SOP Standard Operating Procedure

LOL Laugh out Loud (Hey, I know some people who have thought otherwise)
