Table of Letter Values

There are many resources online that explain the concept of Arabic abjad numerals and list the 28 primary letters and their associated values. I have added this table in case anyone would like to double-check the rules followed by our calculation program — in particular the differences between the Mashriqi (“Eastern”) and Maghribi (“Western”) systems, which are highlighted in green. Further details are provided on the main page.
