We don't do homework assignments.
Make a stab at it and we'll try to help.

I don't think you'll need strcmp for this.
Just an array to hold the letters, a loop and some arithmetic.
As AbstractionAnon mentioned, we won't solve this for you, as per the forum rules.

However, to get you started, here's some tips:

The letters (XCOMPUTERS) can be stored in an array.
Arrays are zero-indexed, so code[0] will be X, code[1] will be C, and so on.

All you need to do when you have that array is get every digit separately, for which you can use a function that gets a single character from the input.

That's almost giving you the solution, so I won't give any more information until you show us some code.
If you still struggle, post the code and we'll be happy to help you along.

All the best,
NwN
