To the best of my knowledge there are 3 distinct solutions of the above alphametic.
Provide the one with the highest value of N.
The other two solutions are:
OMNWHYE_TS and OMN_HWEYTS
As MONEY is 5 digits with SHOW: 4 digits, ME: 2 digits, and THE: 3 digits -- M, O and S must be 1,0, and 9 respectively. H + T + any carry must then be greater than 11 (and less than 19). Iterating through the possibilities, eliminating those where the established digits are already defined, leaves only the three given solutions.
