Sorry, Mikey. I just got mugged by a rampant Brainything.

TRIED

if 1 then E is 4th...TRUMP = 0 = THIRD rules out all other scoring possibilities

if 0 then L is 3rd. RULED = 2 means R_ LED = 1. RILED = TILED means not R. TRIED = 0 would rule out ED, leaving L

RUMOR

If 2 than R is the second letter since there wouldn't be any change between

RULED and

RUMOR besides the last three letters

2 things...might want to include that RULED = 2.

also without looking at any other scores...what if the word was FUMES? each would score 2 but R is not 1st.

True. Ok MUTED. The R isn't proven because of TILED and is 1 and RILED is 1. The THIRD has 0 so the D isn't it in RULED. if 2 then it is ?u?e? because the E is still in RILED TILED and RULED, but if 0 it would be ?ul?? because the L is in the three I named as well.

Sorry TheCube - still digesting your proof (trying to work out which R you are talking about) give me a minute...

I can't except this as a proof because:

* it is not self-contained - I have to include information from other posts in the thread not specifically referenced;

* it is not unambiguous - it needs to define why scores are not for other possibilities, not just propose assumptions;

* it contains errors.

You are really close to something that will score but this isn't it - I've seen proofs from you in other threads so I know you can do it. I can see that you're on the right track - just having trouble expressing it.
