As the 113th US Congress recently started, there has been a lot of conversation around each of the States’ Representatives, Senators, and the States themselves. This week’s puzzle is a cypher of sorts that describes my favorite state. Each letter of the answer is encoded by the sum of the ordinal rank of two States, across some 16 different continuum.
Alabama (the first State flag) is the 1st state, alphabetically.
Wyoming (the second State flag) is the 50th state, alphabetically.
1 + 50 = 51, so the “letter” of the solution that this example could represent is encoded as 51.
Good luck, and use any and all resources at your disposal.
NOTE: I am leaving the comments ON for this post, please post if there are any obvious errors. Please don’t post any answers in the comments, but let me know if the puzzle is “broken,” so that I can fix it.
