# How do you sole this puzzle?

Each letter of the Alphabet has been given a different number value between 1 and 26.

A (?);B(C+N);C(E/K);D(?);

E(R-K);F(Less thanX);G(R-U);H=3;

I(Z-H);J(more thanT);K(?);L=10;

M(T-C);N=4;O(less than Z);P(D/K);Q(R-B)

R(D-K);S=6;T(GxK);U(Less than C);

V(less thanD);W(less than R);X(R/N);

Y(L+M);Z(J-C)

 factor30 Okay. So B=C+N and you know N=4 so B= c+4. It's just a long winded process of substitition , solving equations and maybe some trial and error 13:05 Fri 13th Jan 2012 Go To Best Answer

 Please can you clarify this. Do you mean, for example, that B= C+N, E = R-K, etc? 12:48 Fri 13th Jan 2012 Question Author I have posted the puzzle as it was given to me. When solved, the puzzle gives every letter a numerical value. I am just so lost with it. I do think that B = C + N and so on. 13:03 Fri 13th Jan 2012 Okay. So B=C+N and you know N=4 so B= c+4. It's just a long winded process of substitition , solving equations and maybe some trial and error 13:05 Fri 13th Jan 2012 Question Author Many thanks. I wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing. 13:18 Fri 13th Jan 2012 You can find some others or narrow values down quite quickly too. For example since X= R/4 then there are limited possible combinations for X and R (1 and 4, 2 and 8, 3 and 12, 4 and 16, 5 and 20 and 6 and 24). You can rule most of these out though because 3, 4 and 6 have already been accounted for (as H, N and S)- so that leaves only 2 and 8 or 5 and 20 as possible combinations for X and R 18:44 Fri 13th Jan 2012 You can also find the answers in the other thread, factor. Auntflo is very good at this sort of thing ;-) 18:46 Fri 13th Jan 2012
