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)?
Here's another challenge for you to try:
Either find a word that has the same value both ways (doesn't have to be 100, because, as Charlie proved, that's impossible) OR prove that it is also impossible.
