If 8-22-5-22-13 equates to seven and 7-4-12 makes two, how would you write ten?

7-22-13. It is a substitution cryptogram in which letters are substituted for numbers. For example, 7 = t, 22 = e and 13 = n.

 canu Jul 13, 2004 This teaser does not belong in the math section. Jimbo Oct 05, 2004 You might have added (if you knew) that the numbers are derived by counting backwards from the end of the alphabet. Nicky101 Nov 24, 2004 I agree with canu, this belongs with letter-equations. I was stumped. I was thinking of math as in subtraction. eina_23052 Jan 13, 2005 this was an awesome teaser a bit easy but i dont know what the others are smoking it belongs where it is, if u really think about it, which they obviously didnt MrLarsonCHS Jan 28, 2005 This is too easy. Since all the letters appear in the problem. The code is easy enough in itself you should ask to spell the word numbers or something that doesn't have all the letters represented already DummyisDumb Mar 15, 2005 LOL... easier than i thought krabcat Mar 23, 2005 wen i was litle i used this ames coal so it was easy and the title dosent make sence"gvevm" krabcat Mar 23, 2005 ops i counted the wrong way "seven" now it makes sence and i used the coald the forward way when i was litle Question_Mark Jun 03, 2005 I got it.
