Oh no, I haven't given up yet, it's just that I have yet to find someone who recognizes the letters.

But I think I might know what "language" it is :) I'll try tomorrow.

So, any hints as to what language is the picture for transcription? I've looked at several asian, european, and from the middle-east, but none looks like the one in the picture...

Yay! I didn't think it would be this easy!

Thanks!

I suck at this... I attached my graph, and it doesn't look like anything...

And here are the equations:

Spoiler
y = 0.5 * sqrt(1 - 4x^2)
y = -0.5 * sqrt(1 - 4x^2)
y = sqrt(4 - x^2)
y = -sqrt(4 - x^2)
y = 3 + sqrt(25 - x^2)
y = 3 - sqrt(25 - x^2)
y = -3 + sqrt(25 - x^2)
y = -3 - sqrt(25 - x^2)

Am I way off or on to something?

Thanks for such an addicting puzzle!

So the last part would be something like this:

Spoiler
x^2+y^2=0.25;x^2+y^2=4 V 25-x^2=(y-3)^2;25-x^2=(y+3)^2

And so if I solve those equations and do a "union" of the pairs I get, I graph those?

I'm just trying to see if I'm following the right path, as I still don't really know what I'm doing :)

Maybe this is as far as I'll get.
