sorry i tried to stay away from making these kinds of threads but I really dont know where to start. (i guess since there are no articles about this its probably a really easy one.but i still dont get it)
could you just please explain a little bit about what is meant by addition and subtraction? as in adding and subtracting the letters individually for each character, (as in I will always equal M, for instance) or adding and subtracting in relation to the letters before and after it. i'd really appreciate it if someone told me where to start thanks!

yes that is the gist of it, add or subtract each letter

so is it just a shift by n? I wrote a "bruteforcer" in C where it shifts by a number, asks if it looks right, then shifts by the next number (and so on) and I can't get anything...

I have been on this one way to long. I understand math, but how are u suppose to add and sub. each indivdual letter? Where do you even start? I'm trying to think for myself, but I need some more explination on what to do. Hell I don't even want a hint, just teach me please :wow:.

i havent done this one yet, but i would assume you would use the alphabet. A = 1, B = 2, C = 3; and so on, hopefully thats the right hint if not someone please let him know lol
