Spoiler

Three words... three starts... three lines to follow along the graph.

So far so good. Each point along each line is a separate letter, but all you have is a value for each point.

What is the most direct way to convert a value to a letter?

Re: Help

Need more help with this one please!!!
Followed the hints on the page

Spoiler

Each of the three overlapping paths spells out a word based on the numeric values of each square it visits
What squares?

Spoiler

There is a numeric axis on the far left of the puzzle -so 5=E
10=J
15=O
20=T
