Weekend Prorgraming Challenge – Week #70 Math with words



Make code which enters expression like “3525 + 133 =” and solve it. Easy right? Here is the catch is that numbers and operations are replaced by their words equivalents.

Please support numbers up to 1 000 000 and these operators + – * /


input: “three thousands five hundreds and twenty five plus one hundred and thirty three is equal to”
output: “3658”

The rules:

You can code the solution in any programming language during the weekend and have to submit it to info@olimex.com latest on Sunday November 30th.

On Monday we will upload the solutions on GitHub https://github.com/OLIMEX/WPC

You can play with your real name or with nick if you want to be anonymous, we will not disclosure your personal info if you do not want to.
