# Can you explain the Summation?

This is my first riddle, so I hope it is not to easy.

Can you explain what I am calculating here?

Without N I am following the same creature like Alice

+

Add my short name to my long name and I become a King

+

With ITE I am the weakness of the strongest

=

64

You are calculating

with the atomic weights of noble gases.
Neo (from Matrix) also had to follow a white rabbit, add N to get Neon = 10
Ar + Argon = Aragorn = 18
Kryptonite is the weakness of Superman, remove -ite for Krypton = 36
And finally, 10 + 18 + 36 = 64

• You beat my to it while I was still typing. Commented May 11, 2016 at 10:45
• Just barely - maybe by 15 seconds.

• @kl78 No, that's a perfectly good puzzle! Don't make things super obscure just because a couple very smart people figured it out quickly. Commented May 11, 2016 at 14:00

... the element numbers of noble gases.

In particular:

Neon (10) without its last n gives Neo, who, like Alice, follows the White Rabbit in the Matrix.

+

Argon (18) with its chemical symbol Ar interspersed gives Aragorn, king of Gondor if I have read my Lord of the Rings correctly.

+

Krypton (36) plus ite gives Kryptonite, a mineral which is Superman's weak spot.
