## 1160.12 – ALAS LASS part 2

The mother wrote back:

$\begin{array}{cccc}
A & L & A & S \\
L & A & S & S \\
& & N & O \\
M & O & R & E \\ \hline
C & A & S & H
\end{array}$

As in 1160.11, each letter stands for a numeral (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 or 9). The same letter always stands for the same numeral and two different letters never stand for the same numeral. Your job is to figure out what each letter stands for.

## Solution

There are two solutions that we know of.

1: A = 5, C = 9, E = 4, H = 6, L = 1, M = 2, N = 3, O = 8, R = 0, and S = 7.

$\begin{aligned}
51&57 \\
15&77 \\
&38 \\
\underline{28}&\underline{04} \\
95&76
\end{aligned}$

2: A = 1, C = 7, E = 5, H = 9, L = 3, M = 2, N = 8, O = 6, R = 0, and S = 4.

$\begin{aligned}
13&14 \\
31&44 \\
&86 \\
\underline{26}&\underline{05} \\
71&49
\end{aligned}$

(There are rumors of a 3rd solution with C = 8. If you find it, let us know.)

This problem naturally follows after no. 1160.11, SEND MORE MONEY. There is a very lengthy explanation of the solution to that problem, which you could use to develop the solution to this one.
