Sunday Times Teaser 2639 – Prime Number
by Peter G. Chamberlain
I have given each letter of the alphabet have a different whole number value between 1 and 99 inclusive so that , for example, three letter words might represent three, four, five or six digit numbers. With a specific set of values it turns out that when letters are replaced by their numeric equivalents:
PRIME = NUMBER
and each individual letter used has been given an an odd prime number.
What is the number PRIME?
