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.

You might have added (if you knew) that the numbers are derived by counting backwards from the end of the alphabet.

I agree with canu, this belongs with letter-equations. I was stumped. I was thinking of math as in subtraction.

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

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
