Seven numbers for seven words (Posted on 2015-11-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
7875 90 19 720 19 7875 1800

The above seven numbers represent seven words, the last word being the longest.

The numbers represent the product of the numerical values of words' letters: e.g. LOVE would be represented by 19800 (12*15*22*5).
