# Saint + nick = gifts?

ehpablo

Hey got this quiz in work ad one of the questions are:
Saint
+ Nick
______

It says to replce the letters with numbers and work it out but goes no addition information also cant find the answer anywhere on google lol any help appreciated :)

id imagine the answers lies in numbers to letters conversion on a phone abc=1 etc but dont have an old phone so shrug
^^ good idea, wrong but good.

If it's a simple conversion then G>S whatever you are using.

Wat ya mean g>s whatever im using? Tried the
Phone keypad but it does work out nor does replacing
The letters with their number plae in the alphabet.
With no clues this seems like its just made up
Where did you get the puzzle from?
Alphabet theory

s= 19
a = 1
i = 9
n = 14
t = 20

+

n = 14
i = 9
c = 3
k = 11

Hmm nothing here and for alpha theory would need to work out to be

G I F T S
7 9 6 20 19
It's possible i believe. I just need to get my head down and figure it out. Its going to drive me mad now.

Its a simple trial and error puzzle (with many combinations :{ )

Once complete, each letter will represent a number.

lol, suprise suprise sherlock ;)
Assuming each (letter) number is unique and between 1 and 9 there are six solutions:

ANSWER: 19654+5687=26341 (eg S=1 A=9 I=6 N=5 T=4 etc)
Got the puzzle from head office at work tht bes sent in,
This is the first one tht no one has been able to get.
Just doesnt add up for me no matter how many theorys i think of :( lol
... and if they don't have to be unique there are interestingly exactly 4000 solutions. I won't list them here.

19654+5687= 25341 not 26341
Slight error before (!)

Solution: 79345+4312=83657
Solution: 84172+7156=91328

and including 0's:

Solution: 83072+7056=90128
Solution: 84063+6075=90138
Solution: 24065+6087=30152
Solution: 74065+6092=80157

... and 7600 possible solutions if the numbers don't have to be unique and can include zero. (Such as 00000+0000=00000...)

Started doing it algebraicly then realised I'd get the answer much quicker if I wrote a program to do it for me! The other solution(s) should be fine too, obviously the 84172+7156=91328 is best as its just numbers from 1 - 9.
The first on seems to be the one they are lookingfor
Still havent a clue how s is 7, a is. 9 ect
