You intercept a secret message. Use the secret code Secret Code shown at the right to decode the message below.

 

 

Explanation

From the secret box we have following  letters  corresponding to the digits.

32=T  , 44=H, 15=E  ,therefore  32  44  15 = THE

2=S, 32=T, 15=E ,22=M, 2=S , therefore  2  32  15  22  2 = STEMS

2=S,44=H ,9=O,12=W  therefore 2  44   9  12 = SHOW

32= T, 44= H ,15=E  therefore  32  44  15= THE

32=T ,15=E ,3=N, 2=S therefore 32  15  3  2  = TENS

32= T, 44= H ,15=E therefore 32 44 15= THE

26=L ,15=E ,29=A ,35=V ,15=E ,2=S therefore  26  15  29  35  15  2 = LEAVES

2=S , 44=H ,9= O 12=W therefore  2  44  9  12 = SHOW

32= T, 44= H ,15=E  therefore  32  44  15= THE

9=O ,3=N 15=E ,2=S therefore  9  3  15  2 =ONES

Hence the secret message  is 

THE STEM SHOW THE TENS THE LEAVES SHOW THE ONES 

 

Answer

Hence the secret message  is 

THE STEM SHOW THE TENS THE LEAVES SHOW THE ONES
