9-letter word III (Posted on 2015-12-11) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Search in the English dictionary the words that complete the alphametic sequences + sequences = ?
in such a way the solution is unique.

There are several possible solutions,- provide the one with a minimal value of s+e+q+u+n+c.

ENQSHFRCU.   21   302801703  605603406 = REFRESHER

NTUSQEGIC.   22   354250853  708501706 = INCENTING
ECSQD.OFUN   23   203809102  407618204 = DEFOCUSED
DSECRNUGQ.   25   128625321  257250642 = ENGENDURE
EOQUS.PCRN   25   402309704  804619408 = RESPONSER
.SNTCQU.AE   27   195692491  391384982 = TESTACEAN

Though the title hinted at 9-letter words, I checked for the possibility that a 10-letter word was a possible solution, yet I did not find any such word.

The alphametic solution of minimal value (as yet discovered) is REFRESHER.

To not be deceiving, REFRESHER had been added post Ady's post, though the alphametic still required solving.

I've rated this problem as a 2 as the number of permutations that must be checked reasonably requires the power of a computer, though there are some reductions to the number of possibilities due to logic. A good problem, to be rated 3 or higher, should not rely on a computer.
