Each number is used once with a combination of adding, subtraciting, dividing, and multiplying. The end result should be WORD1: WORD2 (each set resembling a letter)
Thanks for your help this far.
This is the actual problem:
The following code can be decrypted with a mathematical cipher. A rule that applys to each set of numbers that will equal a number that is an ascii code. I do not know how to do this and I am desperately seeking an answer. You can find a chart of ascii values at the following website http://www.jimprice.com/ascii0127.gif
