 Numbered Letters (Posted on 2003-07-17)
If each letter has a value (a=1, b=2, c=3 etc.) what words have a total letter value of exactly 100 when you add up all of the letters?

Are there any words that equal 100 if the letter values are swapped (z=1, y=2.....a=26)?

Travis's answers got me wondering whether or not any numbers exist where the total letter value is equal to the number.

At the risk of re-opening the bucket of snakes regarding written numbers, the smallest one I found is: 251 (two hundred and fifty one)

If the word 'and' is excluded then I don't believe that there are any such numbers, at least for a=1...z=26.
