Codebusters C

Post by Riptide » September 3rd, 2018, 8:30 pm

I think this question marathon would be able to work like fermi since you can check your own answer, so whenever you answer leave your own question!

Question: Encode the following with the affine cipher, a=7 b=21

I could probably figure out out, but it's too late at night.

Sorry it seems like I wasn't that clear. In the fermi question marathon, instead of waiting for someone to approve your answer you research your own answer and check it. Since you can easily check codebusters with a online encoder/decoder I was just thinking it would be simpler to check your answer yourself and then ask a question in the same post as your answer in order to save time. You got the question right so go ahead with the next question.
