Ciphers Substitution / Transposition
The ‘Start First (I)’ section is to be used first. The following letters (indicated in pic 1) are highlighted to reflect “substitution letters”.
To start you will find the first ciphertext letter which is M. Look at the ‘Start First (I) section and find M. Because the substitution letter is in Yellow you will write that letter down, copy the entire bottom row and move over all letters by one. The last letter will go in the empty space below A.
“T” is the first letter and the ciphertext is highlighted in Yellow (T=M). Next letter (after moving letters), look for U. The corresponding letter is H. You do not need to move the letters. You will continue moving letter as indicated until all letters are found.
After completion of the cipher moving as indicated, the follow will be revealed:
I thought I would try something a little different. I have always made of words of some type using numbers (it helps me remember). I am using the Phone dialog as my transposition cipher.
The ciphertext is indicated below:
Put the text in the “key order” which will look like this once complete.
Transpose the numbers into letters using the “Key”
