Re(1): Listener 4347: Pairs by Elap

I reached an impasse at one stage, having overlooked a possible value, but was able to correct the error without starting all over again. Like Robert, I was thrown by the second part of the message, not realizing it ended with GAP, so spent some time trying to make mathematical sense of RDXJ (which I thought had to be deducted) since what followed, NUM, seemed relevant.

I also wrote out the entries in a list, spotted a few that looked interestingly thematic, then experimented with the rest. It was very satisfying to see the pairings gradually emerge with an odd one left at the end.
