When you have words such as

At = 12
Cat =13

So you know that c is worth 1

Each letter of the alphabet has a different value and the lust if words and values allows you to work out each value

They are mostly known as "alphactors" around here.
Although there hasn't been one in PB for a while! I shall have to remedy that for the next set... :D
Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
All of my puzzles are simple and obvious. For certain values of "simple" and "obvious".
