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.

(In reply to computer aided solution by Charlie)

1. What's wrong with TELLS?

2, See my remark re tomarken post - I have  a much longer lis.t

3. How about running your program , assuming some logical values for $(A,Y ,E,S etc)  and omitting (or not ) the asumption that each of 7,8,4 must be needed.?

4. How about assuming what set of lettters (e.g. EE,  RR, LL, FF, SS, TT and other oF YOUR CHOICE) doubles for 44?

5. It is a D4 puzzle, - do not stop here.
