Cryptograms

Cryptograms are puzzles where some (or all) digits are missing from an arithmetic operation. Tinker with different combinations of numbers and letters to unlock the right answer. See more

Warmup

         

\[ \Large \begin{array} {c c c } & 3 & \color{orange}{X} \\ + & & 7 \\ \hline & 4 & 1 \\ \end{array} \]

What digit in place of \(\color{orange}{X}\) would make the above summation true?

\[ \Large \begin{array} {c c c } & 2 & \color{blue}{A} \\ \times & & 4 \\ \hline & 9 & 6 \\ \end{array} \]

What digit in place of \(\color{blue}{A}\) would make this multiplication true?

\[\Large \begin{array} {c c c } & 1 & \color{blue}{E} \\ \times & & \color{blue}{E} \\ \hline & 9 & \color{blue}{E} \\ \end{array} \]

What digit in place of \(\color{blue}{E}\) would make this multiplication true?

\[ \Large \begin{array} {c c c } & & \color{green}{C} \\ + & \color{green}{C} & \color{green}{C} \\
\hline & \color{purple}{D} & 4 \\ \end{array} \]

In this cryptogram, \(\color{green}{C}\) and \(\color{purple}{D}\) represent two different digits. What is the value of \( \color{green}{C} \)?

\[ \Large \begin{array} { c c c } & 1 & \color{orange}{B} \\ + & \color{orange}{B} & 6 \\ \hline & 7 & 1 \\ \end{array} \]

What digit in place of \(\color{orange}{B}\) would make this sum true?
