Yankee dollar (Posted on 2014-06-06) Difficulty: 4 of 5
If
IT*IRK+KLM=TRUE
and
7844$ is a common English word
and
in the above coding distinct digits are represented by distinct letters

then

What letters might be represented by the dollar sign ($)?

Rem1: No acronyms, plurals, proper names, esoteric words.

Rem2: Although there are numerous solutions of the alphametic equation, there exist quite a few candidates for ($) (i.e. the last letter of the common word), with a certain letter (which?) dominating the set.

I just googled "Yankee Dollar", and I see that it was Lord Invader's sequel to the much litigated song "Rum and Coca Cola.  So the word could be Rummy, making the $ = 'Y', despite the fact that "Rummy" is not a valid solution to the alphametic as stated.

More likely, the solution is still "Y", and Yankee Dollar is just an oblique way of hinting that the $ is a Y (as in Yankee)..
