My sister gave me a message today:

13.8  4.8   3     10.8  3     11.4
7.8   15    0     0     0     0
1.8   9     9     6.6   5.4   3

She's glaring at me with an evil eye. (My fault I decided to get her one anyway.)

I better figure this out quickly. What on earth does this say?

Note: She has sworn that the plaintext is not offensive, just incredibly boring.

  • $\begingroup$ Any clue whether those non-integer numbers are exact or could be just rounded to 1 d.p.? If they're exact, multiplying everything by 5 could be involved. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jun 6 '15 at 19:38
  • $\begingroup$ @randal'thor They are exact. You should not use any rounding. $\endgroup$ – mmking Jun 6 '15 at 19:39

She's wondering

WHERES MY COOKIE

You get there by

dividing each number by 0.6 and using the result as index to the alphabet, e.g. 13.8 / 0.6 = 23 => W.
