    8259

  3. Isaac says:

    I ran it through my code and found 3 answers:

    Please verify…

    {‘A’: 5, ‘E’: 7, ‘D’: 1, ‘G’: 8, ‘K’: 4, ‘S’: 0, ‘U’: 9, ‘V’: 6}

    {‘A’: 7, ‘E’: 5, ‘D’: 1, ‘G’: 8, ‘K’: 6, ‘S’: 4, ‘U’: 9, ‘V’: 0}

    {‘A’: 8, ‘E’: 4, ‘D’: 9, ‘G’: 0, ‘K’: 5, ‘S’: 7, ‘U’: 1, ‘V’: 6}

  4. //o// says:

    @ Scot 2 + 3 are not on the list.

    So yes there are more anwers but thats not one of them.

    @ Isaak

    next to 0864 (leading 0 )that is not normal practice

    the last one also is not correct :

    S (7) + V (6) = 3 (+ 10) 3 is not there.

    I got the other 2 answers also.
