    Word Addition

    Can you make the equation correct? Each different letter represents a different digit. (example: If W = 5, then all W's are 5's and no other letter could represent 5). Given: The letter O = 0. There are two different solutions...

    <pre> WRONG
    + WRONG
    RIGHT</pre>

    Re: Word Addition

    Can you solve the same problem WITHOUT using a zero?

    Re: Word Addition

    That is INCORRECT - you have:
    WRONG + WRONG = ROGHT
    And that is NOT "RIGHT" (pun intended!)
    Your "I" and "O" are the same NUMBERS! That is NOT allowed.

    <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> You're right - I'm wrong. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> Copied the wrong number from my scratch paper...

    The one solution I found without using zeros (and there may be others, as I found one and quit) is: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>WRONG = 12734</font color=yellow></span hi>
