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)?
(In reply to re: Words for part A
In the word list I used, of 74,780 words, the mean and standard deviation of the total values for part A were 100.86 and 35.6. For part B they were 130.18 and 41.8. So a value of 100 is quite near the mean for part A.
