DAY 61:

Today’s Challenge

As it’s St David’s Day , our National Day here in Wales, I’ve posted a special Alphabet number puzzle – probably the hardest you can ever imagine!

The longest place name in the UK is a small village on the island of Anglesey in North Wales. When allocating each letter of the English alphabet a numerical value, A=1 B=2 C=3 . . . Z=26, what is the total value of LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERYCHWYRNDROBWLLLLANTISILIOGOGOGOCH when adding the individual letters???

The 7puzzle Challenge

The playing board of the 7puzzle game is a 7-by-7 grid of 49 different numbers, ranging from up to 84.

The 2nd & 7th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

4     8     11     17     24     27     28     30     48     55     63     64     70     77

What is the sum of the even numbers listed here?
