The Dell Math & Logic Problems, July 2017 has error on number 21 on page 46. The answer is HER/OWN/DIGS and the problem would be N = 5 and H = 0. Since you have W = 5 on your solution, then G would be 5. So your solution is G=8 and I =7 which 5X7 would make G as 5.

Hi wa4lrm, we've checked over that Word Arithmetic puzzle you've questioned, and have resolved it to be sure, and found no problems at all. W does not equal 5 in our solution, it is 4, since the solution is HER OWN DIGS, H = 0, E = 1, R = 2, O = 3, W = 4, etc. We hope this clears up any problems you may have found in solving this Word Arithmetic.
