SEND+MORE=MONEY

Different letters equal different digits.
What are the numbers?

Same letter, same digit. different letter, different digit. BTW. There is only one solution.

If you add the numbers that make up Send and More, you'll get money.

The format doesn't matter.

Rob is right. The solution (and the way to that) will be posted later.

If you know what number each letter represents
(and thus what letter each number represents),
you can easily decode my earlier numerical
post.

Okay, here the solution.

9567+1085=10652

Why?

The terms of the sum have four digits. The sum has five digits. So M=1 that means that S must be either S=8 or S=9.
So O can be O=1 or O=0, It cannot be O=1 because, then M and O would be both 1. The conditions don't allow that. That means O=0, which chancels the possibility of S=8. So S=9.

Here is what follows. Try to not get confused.

If D+E<10 (because E unequal N) then N+R-10=E AND N=E+1
therefore E+1+R-10=E ==> R=9 which is WRONG (S=9, not R)

If D+E>10 then D+E-10=Y, N+R-9=E, N=E+1
therefore E+1+R-9=E ==> R=8 which is POSSIBLE

So far we got:
M=1
O=0
S=9
R=8

D=Y+(10-E) therefore (10-E)< or equal 5, therefore E=5 OR E=6

If E=6, then N=7, D=Y+4 (Y=2, D=6 ==> WRONG, because E=6 not D) or (Y=3, D=7 ==> WRONG, because N=7 not D)

If E=5, then N=6, D=Y+5 ==> Y=2, D=7 ==> POSSIBLE.

M=1
O=0
S=9
R=8
E=5
N=6
Y=2
D=7

SEND + MORE = MONEY
9567 + 1085 = 10652 ==> TRUE, therefore the solution.
