Now for the Alphabet Soup. The Hawaiian Alphabet contains 12 letters: a, e, h, i, k, l, m, n, o, p, u, w . We were told that because they have so few letters, the Hawaiians like to use lots. The Hawaiian name for the Reef Trigger Fish is a classic example as it contains 21 letters. We will give you the first two and the last two. You will have to find the rest of the name in order to solve the puzzle below.
H u _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ a a .
To solve the puzzle you will have to find the 26 letter English alphabet’s numerical equivalent with A = 1 to Z = 26 for each letter in the Hawaiian Alphabet. Oh Oh! We have already given you one a = 1. You then need to find the answers to Question A, B, C, D, E, & F below and insert them in the appropriate coordinates below.
A = Equivalent value of the most common letter in the name minus 17.
B = The number of times the most common letter appears.
C = Equivalent value of the letter used only once minus 9.
D = Equivalent value of the seventh letter in the name minus 11.
E = Equivalent value of the fifth letter in the name minus 6.
F = Equivalent value of the eleventh letter in the name minus 3.
Insert answers obtained above in the following coordinates:
