    Help with solving simultanious equations for a puzzle

    Hopefully I've posted this in the correct forum, I'm sure someone will let me know if it's wrong.
    I'm trying to solve a puzzle that needs answers for the following variables a-z all are integers with a value <27.
    I've been unable to find an on-line solver that will take this many equations and I have no experience with simultaneous equations, so your help is appreciated.
    Here's the equations
    a+2b+n+2o=62
    2b+i+l+y=49
    a+c+2e+2h+t=85
    c+e+i+t+v=66
    e+m+u=27
    e+2f+i++n+o+x=69
    a+f+g+i+m+n+o=75
    2a+g+i+n+u=70
    2a+g+j+r+u=81
    2a+g+k+n+2o+r=106
    2a+k+l+o=58
    a+c+2e+m+r+t=75
    o+r+x+y=52
    e+o+r+2t=60
    2l+o+q+u=49
    2a+2d+e+n+p+r=104
    a+e+i+l+n+o+s=83
    2a+b+2l+w+y=74
    2a+2d+2e+i+l=99
    2o+z=50

    Do 2 of the equations have the same letters? 2 of them have to have the same exact letters. Do two of the equations have one letter between them that are different?

    Code:
         a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
    (1)  1 2                       1 2                       = 62
    (2)    2             1     1                         1   = 49
    (3)  1   1   2     2                       1             = 85
    (4)      1   1       1                     1   1         = 66
    ...
    Carry on...
