"?"..."!" (Posted on 2011-02-11) Difficulty: 2 of 5

If the sum of 19968 and 22235 is expressed as 0063, and the product of 20108 and 19977 as 0362, then how would the difference between 20845 and 20116 be rendered?

From the above table I seem to be told that 6 - 5 = 1

Vey close, but strictly it tells you that (six)-(five)= (one) where the words in brackets are Chinese Characters.

The title clue suggests a telegram connection. How does one send a telegram in Chinese? You may like to try looking here: http://www.njstar.com/tools/telecode/ to complete the puzzle yourself. I have also published the complete solution for anyone else wishing to follow the encoding/decoding steps.

Meanwhile:
