Some Thoughts and per se Comment 2 of 2 |
Charlie's solution is the same as I had found. But to add a little...

Given that & was at one time the 27th letter of the modern English alphabet, thus letting &=27 be assigned and substituting & for the word AND, the following numbers add up to their own values:
208 = TWO HUNDRED & EIGHT
322 = THREE HUNDRED & TWENTY-TWO
324 = THREE HUNDRED & TWENTY-FOUR
