# Find the values of the letters in the following and give reasons for the steps involved.

**Solution:**

Each letter in the given puzzle must stand for just one digit.

The operation performed here is the addition

- The addition of A and 8 is giving 3 i.e., this is a number whose ones digit is 3. This is possible only when digit A is 5.
- The addition of A and 8 will give 13, and thus, 1 will be the carry for the next step.
- In the next step, 1 + 4 + 9 = 14

Therefore, the addition is as follows.

Clearly, B and C are 4 and 1 respectively.

Hence, A, B, and C are 5, 4, and 1 respectively.
