S L I D E

(-) D E A N

---------------------------------

3 6 5 1

each of 7 digits from 1,2,3,4,5,6 & 9 is represented by letter in the subtraction of problem above.

Q7. (a) Which letter is represented by the number "3"

Solution:-

3 6 5 1

(+) D E A N

-----------------------------------

S L I D E

It is given in the question that each of 7 digits 1,2,3,4,5, 6 & 9 is represented by a. Different letter in the above problem it is clear that 3+D+carry [If any] is equal to SL. But as it is clear that highest sum of there given no. can be (9+6+1)=16 so S = 1

Now it is also clear that D is either 6 or 9 but D cannot be 6, because in that case L, is equal to 0, which is not possible.

So D = 9

Now from that it is clear that L Letter is either 2 or 3 & A=4, It is also clear that E cannot be equal to 5,4,3,2,1

So E=6

Now we can help of above conclusions.

Ans. to question no.

(a) = L

(b) Which letter is represented by the no "5" ? Ans (b) N

(c) Which no is presented by the letter "E" ? Ans. (d) 6
