In the equation FIVE+TWO+ONE=EIGHT, each letter represents a different digit. Can you figure out which letter is which digit?

The numbers cannot begin with 0, i.e. none of F, T, O, and E can be 0.

Since the solution is not unique, a restriction is added: the product FIVE*TWO*ONE must be the greatest value possible.
