F = 1
O = 8
R = 6
T = 9
U = 5

I could be wrong, but it seems like there could be a lot of potential answers to this as stated.

For example,

> 523
>+ 523
>—–
>1046

Jay, that cannot be a solution as you are using both 3 and 0 for the letter O.

There are 7 possible answers for this:

Where TWO can be:
734, 765, 836, 846, 867, 928 and 938.

And no, I didn’t work them out manually – I wrote a Python program to do the work for me. :-)

Andrew,
the answers

765 and 867 can not be answers because the letter o’s in the two’s have to be the same, making the answer even.

idk if he’ll ever see this but that andrew guy has it perfectly right. no answers for ‘two’ have to be even. when he said those values can be ‘two’, he’s adding the numbers to themselves. any whole number added to itself is an even number anyway, your original logic was flawed to begin with.
