In the following football table and addition sum letters have been substituted for digits (from 0 to 9). The same letter stands for the same digit wherever it appears and different letters stand for different digits.
The three teams are eventually going to play each other once — or perhaps they have already done so.
(Two points are given for a win and one point to each side in a drawn match).
Find the scores in the football matches and write the addition sum out with numbers substituted for letters.
Note: I now have a phone line installed at my new house, but I’m waiting for ADSL to be activated on it, so I only have sporadic access to the internet at the moment. The current estimate is that I should have an internet connection next week.
