If in a certain code language CMWAX is coded as 51525525. Then what is the code for CIPKZ?

Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much.

  • $\begingroup$ I also thought that. But it was not given. Do you think it in the way that the number of position + 2? $\endgroup$ – math maniac. Jul 22 at 11:21

I guess it would be

$510201530$

Reasoning

Convert the string to numbers corresponding to the letter positions in the alphabet $CMWAX \rightarrow 3,13,23,1,24$
Take the next multiples of $5$ after each of these numbers
$3,13,23,1,24 \rightarrow 5,15,25,5,25$
Concatenate the result
$5,15,25,5,25 \rightarrow 51525525$

For the example in question, we have
$CIPKZ \rightarrow 3,9,16,11,26 \rightarrow 5,10,20,15,30 \rightarrow 510201530$
