I wrote the letters like this
A,B,C,D,F,G,H.....and so on
now... I numbered the letters having straight lines only (with no curves),beginning from
A=1
F=2
H=3
and so on.....
thats it!

It was correctly included in the OP, just not the explanation.

Dear friends....I`ll explain it again like this:

 

A..B..C..D..E..F..G..H...I...J..K..L..M..N..O..P..Q..R..S..T...U...V...W...X...Y...Z

1..--..--...--..2..3..--...4...5..--..6..7..8...9...--...--...--..--.--.10..--..11..12..13..14..15

so I gave to each letter having only straight lines(no curves) a number.

Hi...

If
.........f= 3
........ h= 4
........n= 9
........y= 14
.......

Find T?

Shouldn't the OP be F=1, H=2,... etc.?

In the alphabet of (f, h, n, y) k=1!

How is "f=3" in that counting system? The  letter "f" has no straight lines.

Perhaps, you meant "F=3".

Yes...I numbered them according to capital letters,but I asked the question using small letters to make it hard ;)
