1 Answer 1


If New Zealand is 64 and Argentina is 54, then Austria is:

43 or 34


1. The international dialling codes for these countries are +64 (New Zealand), +54 (Argentina) and +43 (Austria);


2. There are 6 consonants and 4 vowels in 'NEW ZEALAND', 5 consonants and 4 vowels in 'ARGENTINA', and 3 consonants and 4 vowels in 'AUSTRIA'.

    $\begingroup$ @DarrelHoffman After a quick scan down the two-digit list, I can't spot any others. There are a few 'near misses' (like France: 33 vs 42), but there's a huge amount of 3-digit countries who aren't even eligible for this right off the bat... Looks like these 2 might be the only ones (though I'm sure someone might be able to devise different valid rules based on some other criteria instead...). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @VassilisParassidis Yes, but none of those countries has the international dialling code +33 (that’s France, which has four consonants and two vowels). $\endgroup$ Mar 26, 2020 at 9:33
