Professor Abacus has earned degrees in both Mathematics and English. With this education, he has made a study of language math. In today's lesson, Professor Abacus has stated that not only does "3 + 8 + 9 = 20", but also that "THREE + EIGHT + NINE = TWENTY". Substitute the numerals 0 through 9 for the letters to make the equation work. Each letter can represent only one numeral, and each numeral can only be represented by one letter. There are no leading 0's. Since there are only nine letters, one numeral will not be used. So as to produce only one possible solution, G is greater than R.

THREE + EIGHT + NINE = TWENTY
