I wasn't sure which heading to put this under since it is for Problem Solving for Elementary Teachers...here is the problem.
In Alphabetville symbols symbols for numbers do not exist as we know them. In fact all numbers are represented by letters of the alphabet. Each letter A through Z represents consecutively a number starting with A being zero. What base are the people of Alphabetville using?
Using the numeration system of Alphabetville, solve the following problem:
TWO + TWO
(be sure the answer is written in letters)
I understand how to change numbers from base to base,etc. ButI get really confused with letters. Any suggestions or hints will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Ok, so ,
I think this should be right so far. So now we want to right this in terms of the letters right?
