The following are identities involving spelled out numbers, each of which is encrypted in terms of a simple substitution cipher. Each of these numbers is less than one hundred
For example, when decrypted: one + two = three and, (two)*(three) - one = five are valid identities. However, words like double
are not allowed.
Decrypt the following to formulate each of these identities:
- (yes)*(with) = (early)*(wave)
- (ore)* (ratio) = (per)*(ration)
- (faced)*(ego) = (most)*(elated)
- paper – end = (table)*(cam)
- (cock)*(for) - this = total
- (fever)*(fly) – not = sting
- (for)*(some) = new + stand
I found the error when this was in the queue, but forgot to tell you because I was not at the computer at the time.
In a way it made for a better challenge. (I wonder how hard any of these would be if the operations were left out.)
