Hi, i need some help with a program that calculates the numeric value of a name. The value of a name is determined by summing up the values of the letters of the name where 'a' is 1, 'b' is 2, 'c' is 3 etc., up to 'z' being 26. For example, the name "Zelle" would have the value 26+5+12+12+5=60. Write a program that calculates the numeric value of a complete name such as "John Marvin Zelle". I can get it to work for one name but for a complete name i am lost. Here is my code so far:
import string import math def main(): word=raw_input('Enter your name:') sum=0 word=string.upper(word) s=string.split(word) print s for l in word: sum=sum+ord(l)-64 print'The numeric value of your name:',sum main()
any help would be appreciated
