# Let D = 3, L = 7 and A = 8. Find the other digits in the sum

M A D

+ A S

__+ A__

B U L L

**Solution:**

We can write it

after putting the values

M 8 3

+ 8 S

__+ ____8__

B U 7 7

3 + S + 8 = number ending with 7

11 + S = 17 (one carry over)

S = 6

8 + 8 + 1 = 17 (number ending with 7 and one carry over)

M + 1 = B U

M = 9

And

B = 1

U = 0

**✦ Try This: **Let D = 5; L = 3 and A = 6. Find the other digits in the sum

M A D

+ A S

__+ A__

BULL

D + S + A = Number ending in 3

5 + S + 6 = 13 (One carries over)

S = 2

6 + 6 + 1(Carry Over) = 13(One carries over)

M + 1 = BU

M = 9

B = 1

U = 0
