  • $\begingroup$ Are you willing to share your solution, post a hint, or change the question such that my approach will not work (or is this impossible?) @smlee Thank you $\endgroup$ Jun 7, 2022 at 3:57
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, here is my solution: rot13(Gnxr gur yratguf bs gur "jbeqf" naq pbaireg gubfr ahzoref gb yrggref. Pbaireg gur yrggref gb ahzoref naq fhogenpg 5 (ybbc bire 26). Pbaireg onpx gb yrggref. Nccyl ebg13. Pbaireg gur yrggref gb ahzoref naq nqq 5 (ybbc bire 26).) (hopefully hint 2 makes more sense now!) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ NOTE: I haven't actually heard of A1Z26 before... I will research it. Do you think maybe I should remove hint 2 for clarity?? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @smlee Won't it still work if you only do the rot13? A1Z26 is simply "change numbers into letters", 1->A and Z->26 $\endgroup$ Jun 7, 2022 at 5:19
