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. :-)
