The 1st pdf above is a complilation of screen shots from a video Khan Academy put out on the cipher. It's a 2 minute video & explained it VERY well. I was able to solve it in about 10 minutes (stopping & rewinding the video) versus 2 days of looking elsewhere and becoming more confused.

Go to the video & literally follow it step by step.

I have to agree with Lihouinvestigators. This cipher was way too hard. Pretty disappointed there wasn't a better explanation in "basic ciphers." I spent over a month trying to figure it out watching and reading a ton of explanations on the internet. And for a moment I thought I understood it with numbers, it lost me when it came to letters. It'd be nice if you guys provided videos to help explain ciphers (without giving it away) vs random videos on the internet.

OMG, so much fun once you figure out how to do it.

I looked online and found a great tutorial and was able to figure out the first two parts and use it to solve the final part.  It did take me several hours though and had made a few mistakes along the way as I was trying to do it later at night. But with a fresh set of eyes this morning I figured out my 2nd mistake.

It helps that I am a bit of a numbers guy.

The video really helped me. I am a numbers person too however this is one of the hardest ciphers until you understand it. I have only seen Alice & Bob once before and it was many years ago. It's a great feeling whenever you finally crack a cipher! And when you can't get it, putting it down and looking with fresh eyes makes a world of difference! Congratulations! Good luck! Happy Hunting 😁

I'm still lost. I read about the encryption keys but don't see how the numbers relate to the message. What am I not seeing?

I'm feeling the same exact way. Don't know what I am doing wrong.
