Would you like to play mathematics?

We developed an application to allow you such a game. The only abilities required by "Cryptarithms (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cryptarithms/id609736978?ls=1&mt=8)" are to sum numbers and perform logical reasoning.

This kind of puzzles has become popular in the first half of XX-th century in Europe. Solving the cryptarithm "send+more=money" was an intellectual challenge thrown by english mathematician Henry Ernest Dudeney. As well as today.

"Mathematical Etudes (http://www.etudes.ru/en/)" provides an application for iPad to encourage you to meet the challenge in any of 6 languages. Solve them all.
