Puzzle the Third (Answers)

The solution to last week’s puzzle is based on a rudimentary code.  The numbers on a telephone key pad correspond to three or more letters.  For example, the number 2 represents the letters A, B and C.  Once you realize that, then it’s quite easy to write each telephone number out as a matrix.  From there, you simply follow the letters to form the words.  Of course, it helps if you have a general knowledge of who the particular people are.  Anyway, I’ve left a few spaces for those who want to try the puzzle again now that they have the key.

 

 

 

Here is a list of twenty names and twenty telephone numbers.  They are in no particular order.  Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to match each unique telephone number to the person it belongs to.  Once you figure out why each number belongs to a particular person deductive reasoning should solve the entire puzzle.  Good luck!
