Can anyone help me with this question..?

Each number on telephone keypads, except 0 and 1, corresponds to a set of uppercase letters as shown in this list:
2 ABC, 3 DEF, 4 GHI, 5 JKL, 6 MNO, 7 PQRS, 8 TUV, 9 WXYZ
Hence, a phone-number specification can include uppercase letters and digits. Write a function called dial that takes as its input argument a string of length 16 or less that includes only these characters and returns as its output argument the telephone number as a uint64. Here is the input and output for one example of a call of the function:
Input: '1FUNDOG4YOU'
Output: 13863644968
please do not use "strrep function"
You can assume that a phone number never starts with 0. If the input contains any illegal characters, the function returns 0.

Hint: it is possible to index a sufficiently long array at a character string.
MyArray('QV9')
is the same as
MyArray(double('QV9'))
which would be the same as
MyArray([81, 86, 57])
and if 7 was stored at index 81...
