    Alphametric Puzzle: talk+talk+all=noise

    Any Math genius:
    I just cannot solve this Alpha-metric Puzzle:
    talk
    talk
    all
    noise
    where each letter represents a number from 1 to 9.
    I think n must equal 1.
    But each time I try, I get eight numbers (instead of nine), where one is repeated.
    This is not for any math assignment— just curiosity.
    Thank you,
    Kierra

    Is each one repersentative of a DIFFERENT value? In other words, if k = a, does this hurt our feelings?

    Let's assume that it would be bad and each letter is a distinct value.

    k + k + l = e OR k + k + l = e + 10 OR e + 20 -- These are the only possibilities.

    Moving on: If it is just e, then l + l + l = 2l = s OR s + 10 OR s + 20.

    What did you try and where did it lead you?

    So you got 9254 + 9254 + 255 = 18763 ?

    Btw, these are alphametics.
