## Challenge #239: SEND + MORE = MONEY

15 - Aurora

Could not come up with solution but a brute force attack

8 - Asteroid

solved

8 - Asteroid

seems complex. I think this could be done with less tools.

8 - Asteroid

Solution!

8 - Asteroid

Takes a while to run iterating through all combinations but it cracks the code and gets to the answer... full disclosure I cheated a little to speed this up by putting the letters with the lowest corresponding digits (0 and 1) in the first two positions to limit the number of iterations needed to solve this.  Had I kept things in the original alphabetical order I had this would have taken 70+ million iterations to solve and 2+ hours was long enough to wait to run on my laptop as is 😀

8 - Asteroid

So I did this in kind of a crazy way...

...generating random numbers until something works. However, that did lead me to find some additional answers to this problem, albeit ones where m = 0, effectively truncating the second and third numbers in the equation.
10 - Fireball

This was a blast, I loved this one!  Thank you, @AYXAcademy!
