Magical Maths

Date: 25th Nov 2015 @ 10:28am

Mrs Parker, Mr Swift and I had lots of fun on our maths course yesterday. What a great subject it is. I think numbers are magical. Do you like mathematics too? How about trying this puzzle.

 

  B I G

+ F A T

___________

    H E N

 

Each letter stands for one of the digits 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. Each number must be used - but only once.

Is there just one answer?

Check again. You have used a 0 but no 3.
So far nobody has worked it out. Keep at it Oliver. See if you can be the first.

Maybe. You need to write out the whole calculation for me to check Amber.
Good luck.

Hi Ms La Porta,
This looks tricky!
I can't quite work it out.
I am doing fine during Covid-19 and so are my brother, sister, Mum and Dad. I hope you are to!
Take care,
