  1. Take out a number

Australia -> Austria, by removing 'a L' or a 50

  1. Take out three numbers

Ireland -> Iran, by removing the three numbers e, L and D

  1. Take out several numbers (not necessarily different)

Indonesia -> India, by removing 'ones' which are several numbers

1. Nigeria->Niger (IA is 26 in hex). 2. Australia->Austria (A is 10 in hex, L is 50 in Roman, I is 1 in Roman). 3. Indonesia->India (removing "ones").

    $\begingroup$ You seem to be removing an extra 'i' in number 2. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Isn't 26 = 1A and not IA? If so, you are then converting I to 1 also? Just for clarification. $\endgroup$
