    Complex solutions like this … discourage you from continuing to try ..: /

      Not complex, just need practice…

    How did you arrive at the solution with code 3? I tried http://practicalcryptography.com/ciphers/atbash-cipher-cipher/ and http://crypto.interactive-maths.com/atbash-cipher.html and http://www.dcode.fr/atbash-mirror-cipher, and none of those sites returned what you got for the atbash decryption.

      Not sure what you mean. Just remember that when using atbash you have to do the numbers manually using

      0123456789
      0987654321

    • Daniel Hobbs

      It’s a regular alphabet atbash, but you also atbash the numbers using the following key:
      123456789
      987654321
      Or, just subtract the number given from 10.

      Most of the online atbash decoders ignore the numbers. Just manually do the numbers and continue on.
