I'm bored of those number challenges. I know we can be more creative. We're puzzling, not mathematics. I've given you enough information to solve this problem.

How can you make t i m e = 14 39 55 58?

    $\begingroup$ 20, 9, 13, 5 is the numbers that are t i m e $\endgroup$ – Duck Sep 11 '18 at 3:57

    $\begingroup$ I assume it works respectively; i.e., $t=14$, $i=39$, $m=55$ and $e=58$.... but you can never be too sure with enigmatic-puzzles... @Duck that is just letting $A=1$, $B=2$, etc. $\endgroup$ – user477343 Sep 11 '18 at 4:22

    $\begingroup$ I don't don't know what the 'e' stands for, but I am sure Tim won't be happy that you have publicly displayed his phone number. $\endgroup$ – Evargalo Sep 11 '18 at 8:09
  • $\begingroup$ @tox123 would "T I M E" make a difference or is it specifically "t i m e"? :) $\endgroup$ – QuantumTwinkie Sep 13 '18 at 13:26

Counting on this t i m e = 14 39 55 58, i f (=1 12) we consider the question:

I'm bored of those number challenges. I know we can be more...

the first t = position 14,
the next i = position 39,
the next m = position 56 (just off-by-one from 55),
the next e = position 59 (similarly one above 58).
