# How to Write a Confusing Code

Ever wanted to be able to understand the worlds hardest and yet simplest code? Well now you can, all you have to do is read on!

## Steps

1. 1
Draw on a piece of paper the letters of the alphabet. On the first row put A through I, on the second row put J through R and on the third row put S to Z. Make sure to leave a minimum of two lines in between each row.
2. 2
Under each letter for row #1 put the number it is for the alphabet. (Example: A=1, I=9)
3. 3
Now beside each number from 1 to 9 put a small 1 beside it. Each of those ones now represents which row it is from. The one means that the number is from row one.
4. 4
For row #2, put the numbers from 10 to 18 under each letter. You should now have the 10 under the J and the 18 under the R and so on.
5. 5
Now beside each number from row two, put a small two beside it. The 2 now represents that those numbers come from row 2.
6. 6
Put the numbers from 19 to 26 under the remaining letters.
7. 7
Beside each letter write a small 3. This will represent that those numbers are from row 3.
8. 8
Under each number for row one, put the exact same number and smaller number from above in that space. Make sure you do this for ROW 1 ONLY and that you copy the large and small numbers fully.
9. 9
For row 2 you must first add the numbers. So for J, you would do 1 + 0=. So J=1 with a small number two to its left.
• Keep doing this for row two and once you are done you MUST make sure that R=9 with a small two to its left. (R=9 because R=18 and 1+8=9)
10. 10
Follow this simple concept for the third row. Once you are done, you should have S=1 with a small 3 to its left and Z=8 with a small 3 to its left.
11. 11
Now that you have mastered the simple code, go out and test your friends!

## Tips

• Make sure that you follow these step carefully. If you screw up and don't fix your mistake, there was no point in even starting this assignment.
• Once you have memorised this code, teach it to your family or friends; but not the enemy.
• The code does work if you do it right. No matter what.
• After following all of these steps, write down a couple of sentences or two and translate them using this code.

## Warnings

• Make sure that the enemy does not get your master sheet. If the do, make a different code by using these simple steps.
