If

C = 5
N = 2
R = 4
W = 1
P = 9
A = 4
D = 0
G = 7
M = 2

Then

B = ?

Hint : added some lines

  • $\begingroup$ @North no kidding. To Soltius - is modular division involved? $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Apr 19 at 0:25

Hint: some of these letters have much more than a single solution.

We just use basic topology of the symbols and see if they correspond: holes, tails, their connections and etc. The classes of letters presented are:
Just a line as in {C, 5, N, 2, W, 1, G, 7, M }
Circle with a tail as in { P, 9 }
Circle with two tails as in {R, A, 4}
Just circle as in {D, 0}.

With that said, B definitely equals

eight.

BONUS QUESTION FOR CREATOR:
What makes me believe that

POLO equals 0.06?

  • $\begingroup$ I would say W=3 under these rules, no? And surely M and W would be the same, at least? $\endgroup$ – hexomino Apr 24 at 11:49

    $\begingroup$ @hexomino I might have been unclear, but by my set of rules M=W=3=2, so you're correct as well. $\endgroup$ – Thomas Blue Apr 24 at 12:14

  • $\begingroup$ Good job ! To be more precise, the "equal" sign indicated that values on each sign were related by a homeomorphism : You can read more about it here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topology, but it basically means that if you squish and pull stuff on the LHS without changing the general toplogy (holes stay holes, etc), you can get the RHS (like a donut can change into a mug). $\endgroup$ – Soltius Apr 24 at 22:23

If a person wants a cool party, what will he say.

Wanna rocking party in big hall

Remove all vowels to get

WNN RCKNG PRTY N BG HLL

Given are the position of letters in which they first appear in this sentence.

B = 14

This is the answer.

    $\begingroup$ Is that.. a well-known phrase? o.O (welcome btw!) $\endgroup$ – athin Apr 22 at 12:20
  • $\begingroup$ No, I just constructed it :P $\endgroup$ – Martund Apr 22 at 12:25
  • $\begingroup$ +1 for fun ;) but incorrect of course. added new lines as a hint $\endgroup$ – Soltius Apr 22 at 16:46
