Solution

## Cryptarithms are puzzles in which letters or symbols are substituted for the digits in arithmetic calculations. Cryptarithms come in three types- alphametic, digimetic and skeletal division. 1)ALPHAMETIC CRYPTARITHMS: If a cryptarithm uses letters in place of digits and these letters form sensible letters or phrases, the puzzle is termed as alphametic. For e.g. SEND MORE ------------------ MONEY 2)DIGIMETIC CRYPTARITHM: A cryptarithm which uses digits to represent pther digits. __1__ x 9__ -------------- __ __ 9 __ + __ __ __ 7 ------------------------------- H A P P Y 3) SKELETAL DIVISION: A long division in which most or all of the digits are replaced by symbols (usually asterisks) to form a cryptarithm. From other source types of cryptarithm include the alphametic, the digimetic, and the skeletal division. Alphametic A type of cryptarithm in which a set of words is written down in the form of a long addition sum or some other mathematical problem. The object is to replace the letters of the alphabet with decimal digits to make a valid arithmetic sum. Digimetic A cryptarithm in which digits are used to represent other digits. Skeletal division A long division in which most or all of the digits are replaced by symbols (usually asterisks) to form a cryptarithm.
