# PLAYING WITH DIGITS.

Assigning A = 1 to Z--26, the word VALUABLE has a value of 76. Adding the two digits 7 and 6 gives 13. Adding the two digits 1 and 3 gives 4

Now we look for pairs of digits which ultimately make 4. They are: 13 22 31 40 49 58 67 76 85 94

1 + 3 = 4 2 + 2 = 4 3 + 1 = 4 4 + 0 = 4 4 + 9 = 13 = 4 5 + 8 = 13 = 4 6 + 7 = 13 = 4 7 + 6 = 13 = 4 8 + 5 = 13 = 4 9 + 4 = 13 = 4 For words which make 4 see 'To Make 4' below TO MAKE 1 Pairs of digits which ultimately make 1 are: 10 19 28 37 46 55 64 73 82 91 Each of the following words has one of these values: DAN AND ADAM NEVER REALLY STUDIED DRAMA WARM RUG TURNED AROUND READ HANDS PIGGY BANK TO MAKE 2 Pairs of digits which ultimately make 2 are: 11 20 29 38 47 56 65 74 83 92 Each of the following words has one of these values: TED ARRIVES ON TIME TODAY, NEAR SEVEN FIFTEEN DORA WINS COVETED SUET PUDDING PRIZE BLUSHING BRIDE RON LIKES ENGLISH BREAKFAST FARM HORSE TO MAKE 3 Pairs of digits which ultimately make 3 are: 12 21 30 39 48 57 66 75 84 93 Each of the following words has one of these values: TED'S STABLING NEARLY FORTY HORSES FOR REG FIFTEENTH OF MAY FLAT MATE INTER CLAN TROUBLE MOON BEAM TO MAKE 4 Pairs of digits which ultimately make 4 are: 13 22 31 40 49 58 67 76 85 94 Each of the following words has one of these values: HE CHANGED HER VALUABLE SILVER RINGS RAIL LINE TWELFTH NIGHT ASK HER AGE WATER RATS PAN RIM TWO O'CLOCK LUNCH TO MAKE 5 Pairs of digits which ultimately make 5 are: 14 23 32 41 50 59 68 77 86 95 Each of the following words has one of these values: JUNE ARRIVED IN AMERICA AGAIN, NINETEEN YEARS AFTER BROTHER DAI THIRD PARAGRAPH YEARS AGO JULY ARRIVED IN HOUSE END HOUSE TO MAKE 6 Pairs of digits which ultimately make 6 are: 15 24 33 42 51 60 69 78 87 96 Each of the following words has one of these values: SECOND HUSBAND DIRK WASHED THE PEACEFUL GREAT DANE WITH SOAP BUYING OR SELLING?
