# #3 A-S=A S-G=G A-1 - D=D R-1 = G -> R=6 -> S=0

-> borrow 1 from the tens column -> S+10-G = G -> G=5

E ≠D, so E=D+1, and E*E has the tens digit, D=E-1, only possibility is D=8, E=9 Consider the second dividend column, since the thousands digit of 955R is 5, and r=6, thuss 955*6 = 5730, and hence a=7, t=3 consider the subtraction 9X36 - 8595 = 6HI yields H=4, X=2 the second subtraction 6HIA-5730 = 68A becomes 64IA-5730=68A, hence I=1

It follows that the digits are, 0 S #5 Notice that the last subtraction has the last digits S-S = M. Therefore M must stand for 0. Notice the last multiplication is DID * D = EMUS. We need to try two digit combinations DI and multiply DI times ten, add D, and then multiply the result by D. Find all of these that result in a four digit answer with the hundreds digit = zero. There are 7 DI combinations that result in a four digit number with the second digit zero. They are: (DI,EMUS) = (34,1029) (35,1059) (36,1089) (67,4056) (71,5019) (72,5089) and (87,7024) We can eliminate 71 because that would have U=I and 87 because it has E=I. Next we will try DID * S = DNIO. That will be the DID we used before times the last digit of the product of DID*D. The only one of the combinations above that works for this is DI = 36. 363 * 9 = 3267 From these steps, we have 0=M 1=E 2=N 3=D 4=___ 5=___ 6=I 7=O 8=U 9=S We need to match 4 and 5 with A or C, so we try DID * A = EACN. 363 * 4 = 1452 363 * 5 = 1815 1 I 2 X 3 T 4 H 5 G 6 R 7 A 8 D 9 E

Barry Lindley is a teacher from Taunton Colin Butcher is a doctor from Croydon David Grainge is an actor from Reading .From this we can tell that A=4 and C=5 It follows that the digits are. 0 M 1 E 2 N 3 D 4 A 5 C 6 I 7 O 8 U 9 S Problem 1 Good Shots Based on the given information and by the process of elimination you have.
