If you give each letter of a word into its alphabetical position, you can then add these digits, or you can multiply them.
[Ref: ZVIU] © Kevin Stone
For example CART = 3, 1, 18, 20.
Adding gives 42 and multiplying gives 1080.
Can you find a word which has the same total whether you add them or multiply them?
CAB = 3 1 2.
Adding gives 6, multiplying also gives 6.
