 Bartender to his apprentice: (Posted on 2013-03-26)
"Get the proof of his age, Joe".

Insert the 4 bold words into alphametic equations:

(I) W1+W2=W3
(II) W1-W2=W4

in such an order that there will be a unique set of non-zero digits (each distinct letter representing a distinct digit) fitting as a solution.

Which digits represent the nine letters a,e, ...t?

REM: I've built this puzzle bottom-up, so there might be solutions different from mine - unlikely, but always welcome.

 Submitted by Ady TZIDON No Rating Solution: (Hide) The way it is worded, there is no unique set of 9 digits, there are 4 distimct solutions, depending on words' order. If the unused digit had been 9 the answer would have been unique: ask+joe=his 652 132 784 520 , without 9. For more details see Charlie's post.
