(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A072959 Using the US English names for the nonnegative integers, assign each letter a numerical value as in A073327 (A=1, B=2, ..., Z=26), treat the name as a base-27 integer, and convert to decimal. 2

COMMENTS

For names with spaces (e.g., ONE HUNDRED), treat each space as a '0', or placeholder, in the base-27 system. (Therefore ONE HUNDRED = 3196540902115084.)

English name for the number n transliterated into Lee Sallows's base-27 system.

FORMULA

In Sallows's system, space = 0, A = 1, B = 2, etc. to Z = 26, so that words and phrases, even number names, can be transformed into numbers.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 11318 because o(729) + n(27) + e = 10935 + 378 + 5 = 11318.

a(2) = 15216 because "TWO" in base 27 gives 20*27^2 + 23*27 + 15 = 15216.

MAPLE

lSallow27 := proc(s)

local a, i, c ;

a := 0 ;

for i from 1 to length(s) do

c := substring(s, i) ;

if c = " " then

a := 27*a ;

else

a := 27*a + StringTools[Ord](c) -96 ;

fi;

od:

a ;

enums := ["one", "two", "three", "four", "five", "six", "seven", "eight", "nine", "ten",

"eleven", "twelve", "thirteen", "fourteen", "fifteen", "sixteen", "seventeen",
