## 5+2+1=8

In Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.

 Puzzle ID: #28029 Fun: (2.5) Difficulty: (3.01) Category: Cryptography Submitted By: shenqiang Corrected By: cnmne

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.
