Tough Puzzle (part 3) (Posted on 2007-08-23) Difficulty: 4 of 5
As you know from Tough Puzzle Part 1 and Tough Puzzle Part 2 TOUGH+TOUGH=PUZZLE,
and TOUGH+TOUGH+TOUGH+TOUGH=PUZZLE have valid solutions.

Besides these three, there are several other valid ones. How many of them can you find? What is the greatest number of times that TOUGH can be added to make PUZZLE?

This problem was suggested by Brian Smith and endorsed by Jer, whom I wish to thank.
