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.

This Python program uses the [[

`Football()`

]] helper class from theenigma.pylibrary. It runs in 33ms.Solution:A vs. B was a 0-0 draw; A vs. C was a 2-1 win for A; B vs. C was a 3-2 win for B. The addition sum is 25 + 25 = 50.
