I think my math teacher is a spy. On the first day of class, they wrote most of a secret message on the board - teacher said there were some letters missing. They said that anyone who could solve it would get extra credit. I think they're trying to find recruits for their secret organization. I've always wanted to be a spy. Can you help me find the missing letters and the secret message?
