# How To Solve Cryptarithmetic Problems 01

Fundamental Rules

 1 Each Variable should have unique and distinct value. 2 Each Letter, Symbol represents only one digit throughout the problem. 3 Numbers must not begin with zero  i.e.  0123 (wrong) , 123 (correct). 4 You have to find the value of each letter in the Cryptarithmetic. 5 There must be only one solution to the problem. 6 The Numerical base, unless specifically stated , is 10. 7 After replacing  letters by their digits, the resulting arithmetic operations must be correct.

Example of Cryptarithmetic Problem

Complete Solution

Detailed Explanation

 1 Suppose if you are considering  A=2, then  other variable in problem cannot have value equal to 2. i.e.  In the given problem above, B≠2, M≠2, R≠2, Y≠2 etc. 2 You cannot take someplace A=2 and someplace A=3 in a single problem. i.e. If you are getting  A=2 and A=3 in same problem, solution is wrong. 3 Numbers must not begin with zero. i.e. In the given problem above, Value of M≠0, B≠0.
