# Dollar Words ZYXs Descending Value Method

THE DESCENDING METHOD OF VALUATION (a=26, b=25, c=24 ... z=1)

THIS IS MORE DIFFICULT SINCE WE ARE USED TO THE ABC SONG

LET'S TRY TO SING THE SONG IN DESCENDING ORDER:

1. ZYXWVUTSRQPONMLKJIHGFEDCBA, "NOW I KNOW MY ZYXs, NEXT TIME WON'T BE SO COMPLEX's"

THERE ARE OVER 1,300 DOLLAR WORDS USING THE DESCENDING METHOD.

THERE ARE ONLY 900 DOLLAR WORDS USING THE ASCENDING METHOD.

AS YOU CAN SEE ALGEBRA IS JUST USING LETTERS AND SYMBOLS TO REPRESENT NUMBERS, SO WE CAN CHOOSE ANY VALUES WE WANT

2. THE SHORTEST DOLLAR WORDS USING THE DESCENDING METHOD OF VALUATION IS THE WORD "ACCA" WITH 4 LETTERS: IT MEANS A GOLD AND SILK BROCADE OF MEDIEVAL ORIGIN; ALSO "CACA" A CHILDISH WORD FOR POOP.

3. THERE ARE ONLY 2-3 5-LETTER WORDS THAT HAVE AN ASCENDING VALUE OF 100; BUT THE DESCENDING METHOD GIVES US MANY MORE 5-LETTER DOLLAR WORDS:

ABBEY   ACRID   BACON   BASAL   BEFOG   BEGET   CATCH   CHAIN   CHALK   CHINA  DODGE   ELIDE   FACET   HENCE   IMAGE   LAGAN   LANCE   MAGMA   MEDAL

4. THE LONGEST DOLLAR WORDS USING THE DESCENDING METHOD OF VALUATION HAS 10 LETTERS: ONE OF THESE WORDS IS "SULPHUROUS": IT MEANS HAVING SULFUR WHICH IS A YELLOW CHEMICAL ELEMENT THAT HAS A STRONG UNPLEASANT ODOR WHEN IT IS BURNED; IT IS USED IN MAKING PAPER, GUNPOWDER AND MEDICINE.

5. LIST ALL OF THE DOLLAR WORDS USING DESCENDING METHOD WHERE THE LETTERS REPEAT (OF COURSE, THESE ARE NOT WORDS): THESE ARE ALL OF THE FACTOR PAIRS OF 100:

4B = BBBB: 25 X 4 = 100

5G = GGGGG: = 20 X 5 = 100

10Q = QQQQQQQQQQ: = 10 X 10 = 100

20V = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV: = 5 X 20 = 100

25W = WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW: = 4 X 25 = 100

50Y = YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY: = 2 X 50 = 100

100Z = ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ       ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ = 1 X 100 = 100

6. ON THE PDF, I LISTED ALL 1,300 DOLLAR WORDS WITH DESCENDING VALUE; TRY AS MANY OF THESE WORDS AS POSSIBLE TO PROVE THAT THEY ARE REALLY DOLLAR WORDS
