Substitute numbers for letters (same letter, same number; different letters, different numbers) so the following equation works out:
KISS × KISS = PASSION
K= 1, 2, 3
if K = 1 then P = 1, 2, 3
if K = 2 then P = 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
if K = 3 then P = 9
S= 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9
if S = 2 then ON = 84
if S = 3 then ON = 89
if S = 4 then ON = 36
if S = 7 then ON = 29
if S = 8 then ON = 44 (S can't = 8)
if S = 9 then ON = 01
if ISS = 033 then ION = 089
if ISS = 699 then ION = 601
1699² = 2886601
2699² = 7284601
3699² = 13682601
none of them work
2033² = 4133089
K=2, I=0, S=3, P=4, A=1, O=8, N=9
FUN PUZZLE!
