Suppose A=1, B=2, C=3, ..., Z=26.
1. What numbers add up to their own values if "and" is used in numbers greater than 100 but not divisible by 100?
2. What numbers add up to their own values if "and" is not used in numbers greater than 100 but not divisible by 100?
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 & TWENTYTWO
324 = THREE HUNDRED & TWENTYFOUR
