Wonderful problem (Posted on 2009-06-07) Difficulty: 2 of 5
“The Square Root of Wonderful” was the name of play on Broadway.

If each letter in WONDERFUL stands for a different digit (zero excluded) and if OODDF, using the same code, represents the square root, then what is the square root of WONDERFUL?

"You've started with the concept of 3300² going to 10 digits?  Then you've worked backwards?"


" To the selfsame tune and words"... 

   i.e. Exactly so

The digits 0 , 1 ,5 , 6 ,  could not be replaced by  F since "wonderful " ends by L and not by F.

So I  hit the right answer in  the  8th trial.

Faster that any computer solution (program creation is time consuming)
