    I concur with bhramarraj and robo on the answer. Thoughtfulfellow, you tripped me up with the hint for a bit: panic has 19 in it and 6 is not a prime factorial.

    Great puzzle, so much faster to solve than create!

    Originally, I started doing this a way to waste a lot of time doing factor trees by hand. I'm guessing you're right that most people aren't looking for that

    Gamble = 1,297,296 = 2^4 * 3^4 * 7 * 11 * 13
    Roulette = 917,280 = 2^5 * 3^2 * 5 * 7^2 * 13
    Craps = 77,760 = 2^6 * 3^5 * 5
    Drunk = 108,800 = 2^8 * 5^2 * 17
    Strong = 23,760 = 2^4 * 3^3 * 5 * 11
    Blackjack = 207,028,224 = 2^16 * 3^5 * 13
    Stop = 810 = 2 * 3^4 * 5
    Tossed = 57,834 = 2 * 3^5 * 7 * 17
    Love = 2,548 = 2^2 * 7^2 * 13

    If you're interested:

    I think this one turned out well - only uses 1-18 but can solve for all numbers. I might try one with all 26 next. I'm really enjoying creating them!

    The letters used in the words below were randomly assigned a value (1-18). Words are given values that are the product of the values assigned to them. For instance, if C=2, A=1, and T=7, then CAT = 14.

    What is the value of “las vegas” if the following are true:


    Gamble = 1,297,296
    Roulette = 917,280
    Craps = 77,760
    Drunk = 108,800
    Strong = 23,760
    Blackjack = 207,028,224
    Stop = 810
    Tossed = 57,834
    Love = 2,548

    As a side note, what do you call this type of puzzle? I’d like to title it with the type of puzzle it is, but can’t figure out what to call it

    Right!

    If you happen back here, did you do it by hand or program something? I like making them, interest in another?

    The letters of the alphabet were randomly assigned a value (1-26). Words are given values that are the product of the values assigned to them. For instance, if C=2, A=1, and T=7, then CAT = 14.

    What is the value of “sweet dreams” if the following are true:

    Sugar = 98,800
    Dollop = 93,184
    Saccharine = 57,915,000,000
    Merry = 275,808
    Tall = 575
    Sleep = 119,808
    Mush = 23,256
    Warm = 16,575
    Chew = 3,240
    Yum = 1,292
    Sticky = 1,159,200

    Fyi, this is possible by hand (i.e. no computer programming required) and there is NOT a unique solution for the whole alphabet or even all the letters used above.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it! I got worried that no one would bite - it was my first time posting.

    I thought it would be more interesting without the process of elimination as an option. Thus, the four alphabets. Still only one solution, so I think it works.

    The letters of the alphabet were randomly assigned a number (1-26). Words/phrases are given values that are the product of the values assigned to the letters. If C=2, A=1, and T=7, then CAT = 14.

    What are is the value of “using your mind” if the following are true:

    grow with love = 57,915,648,000
    do some work = 79,289,280
    backpack = 6,760,000
    better moxie = 49,189,690,368
    jazz = 960
    terrible = 53,491,536
    see = 1,127
    exact = 283,920
    rescue = 5,845,749
    cupric = 15,104,544
    pizza = 17,920
    more = 4,788
    don’t = 4,896
    yes ma'am = 19,561,500
    havana = 425,000

    Took me a while doing it by hand, but I’m sure one of you can speed through it!

    I agree with swapnil. Is this supposed to be tricky because you second guess yourself?

    superprismatic, did you guess? I got 11 holes on my first try, but then kept trying to logic my way out. Haven't had luck, but I'm interested if there's a way to narrow the choices logically. I keep going back to the odd-even rules.

    Not to quibble, but "the value in dollars is the square of the value in cents" means that the whole value as expressed in dollars is equal to the whole value as expressed in cents. $169.13 would have to equal 16,913^2. The examples of item prices given helped clarify, but the question should have read "the value of whole dollars is the square of the remaining cents" or "the value on the left of the decimal point is the square of the value on the right"

    I agree with swapnil. I don't have a better way to figure it out, I did it by process of elimination starting with the 120 combinations that match the rules.

    If you mean so that A+B=C for each column in a grid like this:

    A A A
    B B B
    C C C

    Then it's not possible.
