 Numerology (Posted on 2009-02-28)
Assign the values of 1 through 26 respectively to A through Z.

Find words of x letters (all letters and words1 different) such that the sum of letter values becomes the word value that fits each table category.

The table values represent the best values, being the lowest and highest, for which I was able; the left column represents word length. Can you also do better by providing a word lower or higher than the table value?

The blank cells are for those who wish to press this further.
 Prime Triangle Square Lowest Highest Lowest Highest Lowest Highest 3 7 61 6 66 9 64 4 13 79 15 78 16 64 5 19 89 21 91 36 81 6 37 109 36 91 49 100 7 47 97 66 78 81 100 8 9
1Special note: Should a word score 36 (being both a triangle and square) neither a repetition of it nor any anagrams is considered acceptable.
