# Suzankas Riddle

Here is a puzzle I have been trying to solve for a long time. It was given at work as a monthly puzzle but the solutions were never released.

• Maybe you can use the Welsh alphabet to order the characters. The equations seem very arbitrary. – darksky Mar 12 '19 at 4:26
• Has a correct answer been given? If so, please don't forget to $\color{green}{\checkmark \small\text{Accept}}$ it :) – Rubio Aug 8 '19 at 3:19

If I can resurrect this unsolved puzzle, I believe I have an answer:

N + L = A

At first I wondered whether the answer would be:

E, since the answers appeared to be spelling out 'WALES' and the question's blurb points to North Wales (Gogledd Cymru).

However, I could not come up with a way to make this work, so I'm pretty sure it's a red herring. Instead, I then noticed a different set of connections...

P + L = W

The internet country code for Poland is .pl and its capital, Warsaw, begins with W.

T + R = A

The internet country code for Turkey is .tr and its capital, Ankara, begins with A.

P + E = L

The internet country code for Peru is .pe and its capital, Lima, begins with L.

Which means that for N + L = ?, we equivalently have:

the internet country code for the Netherlands (.nl) so the answer could be the first letter of its capital, Amsterdam i.e. A.

A pointer towards this solution might be:

The blurb's mention of 'riddles and code', which could point towards country internet codes...

I realise you and your colleagues have probably moved on from this question a long time ago but hopefully this answer might provide some closure to this unanswered puzzle if you agree my solution might be correct! :)
