well abt the cryptarithmetic problem - if its a single question u can conveniently leave the question - on the other hand if u hv been taking part in RMO/IMOs and remember the answer - then its ur day - but then if its a caselet with 5-10 diff questins based on it and its variants - u wud be well...
well abt the cryptarithmetic problem - if its a single question u can conveniently leave the question - on the other hand if u hv been taking part in RMO/IMOs and remember the answer - then its ur day - but then if its a caselet with 5-10 diff questins based on it and its variants - u wud be well advised to solve such questions - also the choices will help u a lot while solving such qs - also 55 helps a lot here to solve it quickly

and guys - heres a good index of puzzles -

your answer is correct
see if the below given solution helps the thinking process

As SOTTISES contains eight letters and HOROSCOPE nine, we have S is smaller than 2. As S is not zero, we get S=1. As SOTTISES ends with 1, HOROSCOPE ends with 5. So E = 5 and we have the last three digits of SOTTISES; multiplying them by 55, we obtain the last three digits of HOROSCOPE, which are P=0 and O=3. Having now the first two digits of SOTTISES, we find easily H=7. The available digits are 2, 4, 6, 8 and 9. If T=6, we find (with SOTT x 55) O=5, contradicting O=3. We then have T=2 or 4. But, with the samecalculation, T=2 implies R=7, and H is already 7. So T=4. As SOTT x 55=1344 x 55 = 73920, R=9. The remaining digits are easily found, and the complete solution is thus: P=0, S=1, I=2, O=3, T=4, E=5, H=7, C=8 and R=9, such that 13442515 x 55 = 739318305.

Hey s_b, This is the answer, S=1 I=2 O=3 T=4 E=5 H=7 C=8 R=9 P=0 But the sad part is :disappointed: I solved it in the conventional way...took almost half an hour. Cya hirsat

SOTTISES * 55 \--------------- HOROSCOPE \--------------- In this alphametic, each letter represents a different digit between 0 and 9, and S is not zero. Find the unique solution.
