What would you prefer to own: a

**coconut**plantation or a patented technology (a.k.a.

**knowhow**) to produce canned food from all such plantations in your country?

Assume that money-wise both offers are equal.

C. replied - coconut and K. choose the knowhow.

The philantropist then gave both of them two hours to solve the following alphametics :

i:** WHATDO+YOUWANT=COCONUTS**

ii:** WHATDO+YOUWANT=KNOWHOW**

You are hired by the natives to help one of them or both(your choice), your dollar fee being 1.6% of the higher summand, 11% of the lower or both, (provided you submit correct solution(s)before the time expires).

Your time limit is 100 minutes - define your strategy (*which alphametic to solve first, software or not etc.*) and post both the solution and the amount of time spent,
....**starting NOW**

Watch out - red herring...
