Decipher that 1st code by our author Simon Singh. I'll give you a copy if
you don't have the Code book yet (p. 353).
Decrypt also the Cesaer cipher on p. 354. Work with your team to divide
the alphabet among you so you don't have to check all 26 shifts.
Also if you have the Code book you can decrypt the following:
39 70 31 35 05 27 12 10 29 32 41 09 according to the homophonic substitution
cipher on page 53.
Also write a message for your neighbor to decrypt in class.
Using exclusive or symmetric cypher with key 01010101 and the ASCII table as
in http://www.neurophys.wisc.edu/comp/docs/ascii.html
encrypt HELLO and decrypt:
DC4 ETB SYN
Find the prime factorization of n=4,710,399.
You may want to write a program and
use the list of primes at the end of our book.
D -I - N - O - S - A - U - R - the plaintext
4 -9 -14 -15 -19 - 1 -21 -18 - translation into numbers
6 -2 -21 -14 - 7 - 8 -12 - 9 - the key (chosen arbitrarily)
_ __ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ - adding them up:
10,11, 35, 29, 26 , 9, 33, 27 - now modulo 26:
10,11 , 9 , 3, 26 , 9 , 7 , 1
J, K , I , C , Z , I , G , A - translated back into the alphabet
