What is the logic behind these puzzles. I can typically figure out which letter corresponds to the number 0, but beyond that, I haven't a clue. HELP!

Hi mardi813! Penny/Dell has some great tips for getting started with these puzzles. Here's the link: http://www.pennydellpuzzles.com/upload/documents/How%20to%20Solve%20Word%20Math.pdf

When I start one of these problems I'll pay attention to the left hand side. It's much easier to see if a number (or in this case letter) has to be borrowed from another one. Knowing whether a number is larger or smaller than another one will help as you move towards the right hand side of the problem.
