Scrabble Score

Given a word, compute the scrabble score for that word.

Letter Values

You'll need these:

Letter                           Value
A, E, I, O, U, L, N, R, S, T       1
D, G                               2
B, C, M, P                         3
F, H, V, W, Y                      4
K                                  5
J, X                               8
Q, Z                               10

Examples

"cabbage" should be scored as worth 14 points:

  • 3 points for C
  • 1 point for A, twice
  • 3 points for B, twice
  • 2 points for G
  • 1 point for E

And to total:

  • 3 + 2*1 + 2*3 + 2 + 1
  • = 3 + 2 + 6 + 3
  • = 5 + 9
  • = 14

Extensions

  • You can play a double or a triple letter.
  • You can play a double or a triple word.

Running the tests

To run the tests run the command go test from within the exercise directory.

If the test suite contains benchmarks, you can run these with the --bench and --benchmem flags:

go test -v --bench . --benchmem

Keep in mind that each reviewer will run benchmarks on a different machine, with different specs, so the results from these benchmark tests may vary.
