    Solve this cryptarithm, where each of the letters represents a different decimal digit from 0 to 9. None of T and C is zero.

    (THIS)/(CLOSE) = 5/12

    That answer is invalid due to the original problem constraints.

    Edit: Haha. Do you mind if I ask how you got that answer?

    t=8 h=9 i=6 s=0 c=2 l=1 o=5 e=4
    this=8960 close=21504
    this*12=107520 close*5=107520
