Solve Path[edit | edit source]

For the first two parts, convert the sequence of numbers using A1Z26, ensuring to reverse the second sequence as indicated. You get SIERRA and TANGO, which are the NATO alphabet letters for S and T. For the third sequence, no numerical conversion is required; taking every other letter (omitting the X's), you get ECHOALFADELTA, which are the NATO letters for E, A, and D. Finally, the last sequence suggests subtracting 7 from the numbers, so the next number in the sequence is 25. This can be converted using A1Z26 once again, yielding Y. Taking the letters together, this spells out the word STEADY, the answer to this puzzle.
