P = place value. The P of a letter is its position in the alphabet. The P of a word or phrase is the sum of the place values of all its letters.

N = numerical value. The N of a word or phrase is the sum of the numerical values of all its letters.

S = sum value, P + N

R = difference, N - P

 

The Hebrews do not write a doubled letter twice, but put a dot, a dagesh forte, into the letter to signify its doubling. Such letters should actually be counted twice. P/N/R/S simply mean that the doubled letters, marked with dagesh forte, have been counted twice. (When an emphatic or doubled consonant was not followed by a vowel, usually no dagesh forte was written. P/N/R/S signify that also such letters have been counted twice.)
