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.
