Someone gave me a scrap of paper and told me if I could solve this, I would get a prize. The only thing on the paper was the following:
Help! What is the answer and why?
Solving the cipher leads to a sentence, which in itself can be solved. Spaces are omitted.
The title is a clue, but beware the rotten fish (there are several of them).
This is irrational.
Exponentially irrational even
With this cipher, a single letter is NOT strictly mapped to another letter
What mathematical constant (given by a letter) is found in the title?
I'm a programmer
The cipher is based on position of letter
Irrationality is floored before rotting away
Spaces shown for clarity (but don't count as anything in cipher)
