Below, each letter stands for a specific number. Once a number is used it cannot be used again. Different numbers must be assigned to each letter. There are no zeros in the most left column. Find the value of each letter. (1-9 are used.)

Thanks so much!
Hello, Chinchilla Babii!
If you've never done crytograms, the first one is probably impossible,
. . especially with the typos.

Even more exasperating than the guy who thinks
he knows it all is the one who really does.

Below, each letter stands for a specific number.
Different numbers must be assigned to each letter.
There are no zeros in the most left column.
Find the value of each letter. (0-9 are used.)
Hence: . with a "carry" from column-3: .
Obviously, and we have:
In column-4, we have:.
. . This is true if: .
Since , then
In column-3: .
. . The only solution is: .
Some obvious advice . . .
Don't even try to convince your teacher that you solved these yourself.
He/she will probably give an additional problem to solve,
. . just to observe your technique.
And you'll prove to everyone that you are a Cheat, a Liar, and a Complete Phony.
I'd like to know how you can state that ?
. . .
We have some three-digit numbers and one four-digit number.
. . And their sum is a five-digit number.
If the upper digits were all 9's, we'd have:. ... maximum sum.
. . Hence: .
Then the sum begins with 1: .
Its second digit is
So far, we have:
And we see immediately that
How can the sum begin with ?
There are two ways;
. . , and 2 is "carried" from column-3
. . , and 1 is "carried" from column-3.
Suppose , then we have:
In column-4, we see that: .
. . Since is an even number, this is impossible.
Therefore: . . . . etc.
