 Find the J (Posted on 2006-08-04)
Each letter of the alphabet has been assigned a different value from 1 to 26. The number following each word is the sum of all the letters in it. Your task is to discover the values of all the letters and then decide the value of J, which is not used.
```ABLE  38   ACID  23   ACRID 24   ADMIT  45
ALE   30   ANIL  48   ANKLE 66   ANTLER 52
ANVIL 66   APPLE 72   AQUA  36   AREA   12
ARENA 24   ARROW 27   AURA  27   AWAY   41
AWE   24   AWFUL 78   AXLE  44   AZALEA 49
```

Sequentially

R=1, V=18, L-W=6, Q=8, 2A +U=26 ( U is even), O-E=1, 2A + E=11 ( E is odd), B=8

Two letters with the same value. Cant proceed.
