A = B + C + D + E + F and so on.

B=2, C=3, D=4,... Z=26

Solve For A

Hint: It is harder than what you think...

P.S. Also, I made this up myself.

The thing is Sigma presents the answer to be 350, it couldn't possibly something else with the information you've given us, so as it stands, i don't care what you say it is, 350.

Please, enlighten me. I grow ever more curious about the verbal trickery he's used to make this anything other than a math exercise.

yeah I figured it out from his answer just minutes ago. Im not sure whether to sigh in frustration at something so ridiculous or actually be upset that I didn't spot something so obvious.

Also it doesn't say plus A as if it did the value of a would be imposible.

Since apparently it's NOT 350, I can only assume it's SOMEHOW 351. I'd like you to show your working after you think you've had enough attempts.

well, using math the answer is 350... but you claim that it isn't... so there must be a play-on-words or something somewhere... but where... : /

Removed my previous vote of Math. I put all those numbers in a calculator and got 350. Since 350 isn't the answer as Pickleaxe257​ said. It's gotta be 351 isn't it?!

And tell me if I'm wrong

not 351 or 350. 351 is adding A. A≠1

Screw it!!!! I’m gonna guess a number that not 350 or 351 and hope I get it right I’m gonna choose 500 (most likely wrong but I don’t care anymore)

it looks like A isnt an answer but a question,... maybe its
A1 = A
but then you break it, its hard so is it correct to remake the question into
A = 1*B+1
with A being the answer and B being what you are using that B,C,D,E,F... Z.?

its not really a riddle when you can easily use a calculator to figure it out. And yes, the answer is a bit tricky if you let yourself be confused, but if A really is equal to the sum of 2 through 26, then it's simple enough. If not then it's poorly stated.

Very curious what little trick you have in your wording that allows you to claim another answer, then. Because by pure maths that is the answer.
