Codes and Ciphers 4

I don’t think that this actually counts as a cipher, but it might be that it doesn’t count as a code. Possibly both. You decide.

I use this as a very quick way to disguise words. Don’t ask why or what sort. It is very easy to write and read on the fly. I just want to see if you need to know how it works to figure it out. I came up with it myself, but it isn’t at all original. Try it.

I made this because I was bored. You’re reading this because you’re bored. Remember that and forgive me for this.
This is pretty simple alphabet based code with no purposeful message, punctuation is not coded

Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension: an essential addition to the nerd-kit

Like mathematics? Puzzles? Thinking? Prime numbers? Pi? You need this book.

‘Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension’, written by Matt Parker (if you’re reading this, you probably know him), is the most enjoyable maths book you could hope to find. Learn about hexahexaflexagons (almost as awesome as dodecahedral not-Rubik’s not-cubes), the official way to colour in knots, four-dimensional straws, base-three card tricks, domino calculators, impossible-but-not numbers, binary scarves and Klein bottle beanies

I HAVE MADE ADJACENT WORDS DIFFERENT COLOURS TO HELP YOU TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE, AND ONE IN EACH PAIR OF SIMILAR SYMBOLS BLUE.

Codes and Ciphers 1

J.P        *        =       

0.RJ      *        =        ◊

T.E       *        =        ◊

0.IT      *        =        ◊

R.U       *        =        ◊

0.JR      *        =        ◊

note that in 0.JR, 0.IT AND 0.JR, the first digit is a zero (0), not O.
  • * = x 10/ 100

  • each pair of s  (1st+2nd, 3rd+4th, 5th+6th) = 100

  • each letter= 1 digit i.e. A=6, ( now no other letter can be 6)

  • no letter is 0 or 5

How many solutions can you find?

Arrange the letters to make the name of a planet. Find the solution which gives the planet’s name the highest value.

By the way, this should really be called Weekly Snippet, but Daily Snippet sounds better.

‘THE CANINER’ found Chloë first. Well done!
