Dolly was the name given to the first cloned sheep at the UK’s Roslin Institute in 1996. The letters in the diagram represent, in some order, the numbers 1 to 16 forming a magic square where each row, column and main diagonal have the same sum. The letters of the word “clone”, and letters not within the square, have their values according to a=1, b=2 etc. but other letters within the square may or may not.
What is the sum d+o+l+l+y?
