Is the number of characters in this ciphertext not supposed to be a multiple of 5? for some reason when i'm separating them into groups of five im getting an extra character at the end.

alright not sure if I encoded this correctly, but here’s a shot at an RSA question:

7 8 11 0 13 8 6 16 10 20 7 13 14 1 5 16 0 12 18 20 9 10 1 5 16 0 12

decode this with the key (21, 5)
