Hi everyone. I have this problem for my calculas class. So far i can only get a word which adds up to 94. any help is greatly appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For the alphabet, let a=1, b=2, ... z=26 then, you can start adding up letters of a word. For example, "love" = l+o+v+e = 12+15+22+5 = 54. So, love is 54% important. If you get a word that adds up to more than 100, subtract 100 from it until you get a number equal to or less than 100. The question is: can you find a word that adds up to 100 exactly?
