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 Another Challenge
There are myriad words that work, just, as Charlie said, the total value must be a multiple of 27. The shortest would be two-letter words for which the letters have 'opposite' values, such as by or lo.
I'll post a full list in the next comment.
