Upon Reflection (Posted on 2013-11-22) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The Alphametics:
WED + TAB + PIN = X j k Y
and
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.

(In reply to The Essence - re:official solution by Ady TZIDON)

The retort of one who did not get his way in having the problem modified to suit his desires.

I think a post mortum and lecture about what the problem "should have been" was in poor taste and does not enhance the enjoyment of problem posters (some other posters have had this happen to them too)!
