## Question

the task is simple: crack the following code:

1623373739103237344718161247101226131012102412171739102623191039231237

Every word in code is twice as long as long as it should be after decoding

Enjoy!

I think you're missing a 24 in the second word.

MERRY C(H)RISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Is there a pattern to it? I just went with the brute force method.

each letter is represented by 2 digits. the first digit repeats 1,2,3. the second digit repeats 2,2,2 then 3,3,3, then 4,4,4 and so on. sooooo

a=12

b=22

c=32

d=12

e=22

f=32

g=13

h=23

i-33 and so on. then if you go by the code and use the corresponding letters, you will spell merry c(h)ristmas and a happy new year. You missed the h as the previous poster already commented.

oh yes, i see. at the first digit for s goes to 4 which makes the first digit for t=1 u=2 v=3 w=1 x=2 y=3

Did you accidentally leave the h out though?

yes, it was an accident

Continuation to the riddle, can anyone figure out why I made it this way? What first number for every character signifies, and what does the second signify? The riddle was for the answerer to notice that rather than figure each letter out.

The 2nd number is the number that you would press on your phone. The first number is the number of times you push the number to get the corresponding letter. Hmm. I wonder if this would be easier for people who text.
