Upon Reflection (Posted on 2013-11-22) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The Alphametics:
WED + TAB + PIN = X j k Y
DEW + BAT + NIP = Y k j X
..... when considered concurrently have 864 solutions.

In the totals X=1 and Y=2 or X=2 and Y=1, and j and k are distinct integers represented in the set of variables.

Why can X and Y never equate to W, T, P, D, B or N? The digits 0-9 are all available but there are no leading zeroes.

I am not about to bring Perplexus into a slanging match like that between Gamer and Penny quite some years ago.

My problem merely asked for a logical explanation but you sought to "hi-jack" my proposal with your own thoughts.

I shall not address this issue further!
