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 base27 integer, and convert to decimal.

COMMENTS

For names with spaces (e.g., ONE HUNDRED), treat each space as a '0', or placeholder, in the base27 system. (Therefore ONE HUNDRED = 3196540902115084.)
English name for the number n transliterated into Lee Sallows's base27 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

a := 0 ;
for i from 1 to length(s) do
c := substring(s, i) ;
if c = " " then
