Puzzle Details

The BrainBashers football world tour is well underway and Alex is planning the journey to each country.

Unfortunately, the BrainBashers atlas software is playing up again and has worked out the mileage incorrectly, as shown below.

China       3,500
Finland     6,000
Chile       3,700
Jamaica     3,800
Wales       6,000

According to the software, how many miles is it to Germany?

Answer: 8,300.

Each letter of the country is worth 100 miles based on its position in the alphabet. Therefore, Germany = 7 + 5 + 18 + 13 + 1 + 14 + 25 = 83 * 100 miles.
