Huh???

If we assign a number to each letter of the alphabet a=1 b=2 etc

and then work out floor(n/2)+floor(n/9)

all the supplied letters make sense

could you explain how you got your answer?

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!

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!

Please see my above explanation

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 ;)
