 From proverbs to alphametics (Posted on 2013-02-15)
The proverbs:

The early bird catches the W1.
Where the wolf gets one W2 - he looks for another.
The best horse doesn't always win the W3 .
Better wed over the mixen than over the W4.

The alphametics:

W3+W2=W1
W3-W2=W4

The phrase "The bear came home to the wolf" uses 12 distinct letters, - three of them were not used in the alphametics.

Which three?
What digit was not used in the equations?

On advice that one of the assignments was offered incorrectly a modification of the program listing previously offered returns:
W1 = WORM = 8915
W2 = LAMB =  7453
W3 = RACE =  1462
W4 = MOOR = 5991

The digit not used in the equations is zero (0).
