You want to tell us what we are supposed to do with those numbers.

If that is a question it should end with a question mark.

If you want an answer the answer is "No" - you have to work it out; that's why it says "Exercise your brain".

Sorry don't mean to sound like a smartarse but it's pretty simple (and that's a hint).

Any takers?

What does it need a Prize or something?

Tim Tams, Cherry Ripes, what?

Maybe it too hard, I was good at Maths in school and I have no idea. give it a few hours, most of Europe will be awake, and won't be ready for any maths problems at this time of the morning, same with the USA, some would even be still asleep.

The paper's on the book of Jonah...I also have to put together a speech oultine for a pursuasive on why digital cameras are better than film...fun stuff. A hint would actually be nice...could you somehow separate the individual letters so they're not all run together in the words? That might make it a tad easier...

Coughing up at least one of the number=letter combinations would be a help. I would assume that 1=a or i and 0=a or i but, the first sequence of the third row is '1113' and I know of no word in English that begins 'aaax' or 'iiix'.

But the rest...

Well done! Second part of the Prize to you!

Need the third hint? (or is the given hint enough?)

Extremely well done! And the third part of the prize to you as well!

I'm off to get some shuteye now so I'll leave it to you to explain the solution and to you and RoyalDutch to think about what prize/s you would like.

Regards

Rob

So...EmceeOh...what's the solution to the other ones? I know I'm going to be kicking myself when I figure it out....

The second line is like the first, but counting from zero instead of one

a-0
b-1
c-2
d-3, and so on

and the third line is counting from one, but without the vowels, those are counted separately, so

a-1
b-1
c-2
d-3
e-2
f-4, and so on

I'm glad I didn't have anything to do today, because I knew I wouldn't be able to do anything else until I'd figured this out.

EmCeeOh -

I see how you get the third one form that, but the second one still isn't making any sense...

As far as my prize is concerned, TSV, you could get me some Duct Tape and WD40  Laugh out loud

Whoops! I explained it completely wrong. It's the last digit of whatever number it corresponds to, counting from zero, so

a-0
b-1
c-2

meaning

k-10 = 0
l-11 = 1
...
u-20 = 0

I just looked down at the paper I had scrawled down all the numbers on when I wrote the explanation, and I didn't think to make sure I was making any sense.
