Steve, of course, has answered it - but the puzzle does remind me of another formula that includes the word "money"...

4. Re: send more girls please

Theres actually quite a few solutions still to find ,

leifs lol,

5. Re: send more girls please

A correction:
Since money is the "Root of All Evil" not the "root of evil" , it comes out that girls are "all evil" not just "evil" <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

Sadly this is another example of how you can (attempt to) prove almost anything with the improper use of mathematics.
There is the same problem in logic with the invalid use of syllogisms.

Are you implying there is more than 1 solution to the puzzle?

I don't think so, unless you each letter does not have to have a unique digit (and if that is the case there are a multitude of answers) or we can start working with digits other than just the Base10, or we can assume M=0 and have a left digit a Zero. None of these are usually "accepted" as answers in these types of puzzles.

You mean like:

God is Love
Love is Blind
Ray Charles is Blind
Therefore....

9. Re: send more girls please

That's the sort of thing!

You cannot validly conclude: Therefore God is Blind...

I conclude that:

I was never any good at logic...!

12. Re: send more girls please

On the Monty Python and the Holy Grail Soundtrack album (and when I heard it, yes it was a vinyl album), after the "proving that she's a Witch" scene, they have a Professor explaining how the scene is all wrong and how you can not use logic the way they use it in the scene. I recall it being very funny and all the points you mention are used.

Another good proof is:
<table border=1><td align=center>a=b</td><td align=center>Given</td><tr><td align=center>a

14. Re: send more girls please

Slight problem with this line

<table border=1><td>a+b = b</td><td>Divide by (a-[img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img]<td></table>

You are correct. Many people overlook this.
