Puzzle #133: Find the Letters

This is a cute problem, a relatively easy one, from Brilliant.org. For those of you who have stopped sharing the puzzles with children, might be a good idea to share this one, I think most kids can do this with some trial and error.

Each letter is a unique digit, and L is 0 (zero)

    R=7, E=9, D=4, H=3, T=6, A=8, O=1, F=2, M=5

  3. Arun says:

    Problem is cracked by solving for letter E which can only be 9. It also requires a carry over from the previous column implying R>=5.
    R cannot be 5 as L=0 and cannot be 9 as E=9 which leaves 6, 7 & 8 as the only options.

    Rest of the solution is hit & trial.
