Identifiable Identities (Posted on 2012-03-31) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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, triple, unit, unity, dozen are not allowed.

Decrypt the following to formulate each of these identities:
  1. (yes)*(with) = (early)*(wave)
  2. (ore)* (ratio) = (per)*(ration)
  3. (faced)*(ego) = (most)*(elated)
  4. paper end = (table)*(cam)
  5. (cock)*(for) - this = total
  6. (fever)*(fly) not = sting
  7. (for)*(some) = new + stand

Sorry I forgot to tell you. | Comment 5 of 6 |
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.)
