Logic for coding decoding:
Firstly, the numeric value before respective codes is the addition of numeric value of the first two alphabets in the respective word followed by the word itself where the last alphabet in the word is replaced by its reversal

For example - 'studying' is coded as '39studyint'
39= 19(S)+20(T)

and 'g' is replaced by its reversal 't'
