While I was in school this morning, I found a way to encode text... unusually.

In 15 minutes, I drew this sketch:

1 ~ * ¬ +*-*++*+* ¬
5 ~ *+*-----*++++++* ¬
4 ~ *++++*+*++*+*
1 ~ *+++++++*+++++*
#!

1i/2l/3k/4e/5t/6h/7s/8n/9c/o+1/d+2/g+3

What does the sketch say? Also, explain how to decode it.

This took a minute of looking at cuz there was a small issue.

I like this encoding!

How I found the answer:

Starting with 1 you get 'I' from the key. Then add 1 you get 'L' subtract 1 you get 'I' add 2 you get 'K' etc.

1 ~ * ¬ +*-*++*+* ¬
I like
5 ~ *+*-----*++++++* ¬
This
4 ~ *++++*+*++*+*
Encod
1 ~ *+++++++*+++++*
Ing
#!
!
¬ --> space and # --> punctuation.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm actually not sure. I was thinking space, but it's missing one if its a space. $\endgroup$ – Z. Dailey Mar 18 '16 at 14:22
  • $\begingroup$ Right! I forgot one of those. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – user18031 Mar 18 '16 at 14:47
