# Thread: Next set of numbers?

1. ## Next set of numbers?

Hey! I'm back with another math-related puzzle.

I'm guessing the answer I have to submit is a number set; there are obviously some numbers that appear more than once. (Not sure what the purpose of the commas are.)

Any thoughts?

Possibly each set of two numbers stands for a letter, and the commas are there because there is a written message in English.

The code may be something as simple as n = A, n+1 = B, n+2 = C, ..., or the letters may be jumbled and you'd have to rely on letter frequencies to guess their values, or else, some sort of brute force with a dictionary.

Just an idea.

3. When performing a frequency analysis consider the most common letters of the alphabet first. I would try e,s,t,r & a.
