"HELLO World" has value 12, while "Puzzles are great" has value 223.

What is the value of "Puzzling StackExchange" ?


1 Answer 1


I think "Puzzling StackExchange" will have a value of

24. (assuming StackExchange is one word).

The numbers are formed from

the number of letters that have a "hole" in each word. For example, HELLO contains only 1 letter with a hole, which is O and world contains 2 (o and d). So its final value is 12.
