Numerical Charades Part 4 introduces a new type of numerical tautonym. The letters of the word TABLE, for example, assigned their alphabetical values (a=1, b=2 ... z=26), make 188.8.131.52.5. By splitting TABLE into two parts, specifically TA and BLE, and using the 2 functions + and -, T-A=19 and B+L+E also =19, making TA.BLE a numerical tautonym represented by 19.19. The words listed below use 2 or more of the four functions + - x ÷ and parentheses where necessary. A particular function can be used any number of times. A word can be split at any point along its length.
