Alphametics The Art of Numbers  
As CAT 2008 preparation starts heating up, I am
going to flag the race with an oddball topic: Alphametics. What are alphametics
or cryptarithms as they are also known? Alphametics are number puzzles in basic
arithmetic operations where digits are represented by alphabets. It is
customary that different digits are represented by different alphabets. Why are
alphametics relevant? Because they require a good knowledge of properties of
numbers and skill in working with them. Solving alphametics helps you quickly
identify solution to many problems which might otherwise require a good amount
of time. Let me give an example: I am afraid I shall have to end here and leave the rest of it for my CBT Club students. I shall cover some problems based on this in the CBT Club this week.
