From proverbs to alphametics (Posted on 2013-02-15) Difficulty: 4 of 5
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?

Some Thoughts re: PIECE OF CAKE Comment 8 of 8 |

Ady:


This is a great, original problem.  I'm about to solve analytically, but I'm sure it will work out.

I think it would be a shame to leave the problem incorrect.  I think you should change the problem so that it is correct, and note in the problem (not the solution) that an earlier version of the problem was incorrect.
