    If you have done all your previous chapters and answered all the questions up till this point - you have all you need to be on your way to solving this cipher.

    Thx ednel. The only prior questions I have not answered C.3, Q 1+2, and C. 4, Q 6. Perhaps I misinterpreted some earlier posts that the C. 4, Q 8 was what was needed as the key for Q 20. Will go back to review some other questions but let me know if going down the wrong path.

    Thx again and for the PM (can't respond yet based on limited number of posts). I misled myself and focused on wrong thing for key. I have it now. On to another question.

    Default Q.6

    Having issues with the codes that have both numbers and letters similar to this one. I do not have the "Cracking the Code" book which may be the problem. It there another way to solve without the book (ie. internet based)? Appears this is something like Ch. 5 Q. 9 which states Caesar but unable to figure out with the numbers. Thx.

    With the book "Cracking the Code" you would get these pretty easy.

    The concept is very similar to C5-Q9. Traditional ciphers (playfair, vigenere, caesar, substitute, tap, etc) use primarily letters. How would you "extend" them to include numbers?

    Thx BoatDaddy. I needed to simply think a bit about these and really they are pretty easy. I think I have now solved all of the similar codes but Ch. 12, Q. 13 is giving me a fit (no the decrypt but finding the right answer once decrypted . . . all google searches have resulted in an answer that is not accepted).

    Hard to understand why there are so many different answers to one question! Keep Googling and you'll find it.

    Default Question 17

    I hate it.

    It's making me feel stupid.

    I know what the UK flag looks like, I'm pretty sure I am following the instructions properly but am not getting the right answer.

    Anybody care to throw me a bone over here?
