 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)?

Another word is 'medal' M=14 E=22 D=23 A=26 L=15 Charlie ran a computer program and found these words for when A=1 and these for when A=26.
