It was on Canada's Greatest-Know-It-All. It's supposed to be really easy but I can't figure it out. Perhaps I'm dumb.

Here it is

Can you solve this puzzle?
(First correct answer - ten points)

Locks requires a 4-digit code to enter/exit.

The 2-word clue represents a 2-digit number based on the sum of the letters in each word. A=1 Z=26…

“ENTER HERE”

“ENTER HERE”

I thought it was 6236 as well but it says the two-words represents a two-digit number. So I assume you add up 62 and 36 as well which gives you 98. But it requires a 4-digit code. I'm confused lol.

I don't know what the answer is. That's the lame part about the show is that they don't reveal the answers to most of the stuff they ask.

Also, in case your curious. I rewatched the show and copied the question verbatim.

Maybe replace "enter" with "exit" for the second number?

If this is case, it would be 9894.

There's nothing worse than a poorly worded/ambiguous puzzle...

A = 1
b = 2
c = 3
d = 4
e = 5
f = 6
g = 7
h = 8
i = 9
j = 10
k = 11
l = 12
m = 13
n = 14
o = 15
p = 16
q = 17
r = 18
s = 19
t = 20
u = 21
v = 22
w = 23
x = 24
y = 25
z = 26

e = 5
n = 14
t = 20
e = 5
r = 18

enter = 62

h = 8
e = 5
r = 18
e = 5

here = 36

enter + here = 98

9898

“ENTER HERE”

Enter has 5 letters, Here has 4. Therefore, 54.

I don't get the "Locks requires a 4-digit code to enter/exit" part...

Maybe "5454" then?

[edit: or "5444" which takes care of 'enter here' and 'exit here'...]

1000 tries should do this. As we can see from this exercise, you usually can't easily guess a password like it is often portrayed in the movies.
