Adding letters instead of numbers
posted by Rich A .
Is anybody smarter than a fifth grader on this problem? I'm not able to help my son with this homework problem.
e g g
+ e g g

p a g e
a=____ e=____ g=____ p=_1___
How we started: p = 1, and g is greater than 5.
Thanks!


Thanks very much! You're going to make me a hero with my son.
