    No ... you are just new to the hunt. I do recommend the "cracking the code" book that goes with this book if this is your first treasure hunt.

    This cipher changes as per your cracking the code book. Read about this cipher and see what changes are sometimes made to make this one work. You have everything you need to solve this cipher, just take your time and it will all work out.

    Also forgot to mention - YOu must get it copied perfectly to work out. If you are off by one letter or forgot a few ... the cipher will not work out.

    Ok, I'm using the 5x5 matrix. I'm using the 6 letter password from question one chapter one. I've got the book(cracking the code), I've copied the question down right and and followed what it told me to do in the book(combine letters I and J) . I'm only getting the first 2 words of the question out of it.... What is.....then it goes to crap. I'm throwing in the towel. It's the only question I need to finish this chapter. I got a match...I'm going to do it, you can't stop me....I'm going to burn it....(joking)

    Does your 4th column contain of the 5x5 contain the following letters: HFOTY ?

    If so... then T is right above Y and H is above F as it should be.

    Default sad

    what's sad is...I guess the right answer by the number of letters for the answer.

    You have the right 5x5 then !

    When you are decoding and you have two letters in the same column, you pick the letter ABOVE.

    Keep at it. Chapter 1 is all about learning how to use the ciphers. If you have decoded Chapter 1 Question 4 you can use it as a guide to what you should be getting for Question 7

    Thank you so much for the help. In my code book, It told me to you pick the letter below, and not above. Thanks again and now I see the question they asked me.

    When you are ENCODING you pick the letter below, when you are DECODING you reverse the process.

    Congrats ! You are through your first one .
