If each of the letter above represents a digit (for example, s = 4, e = 6), which digits would they have to be for the equation to be correct?
Jake is walking at 2.5 miles per hour. Bob is trying to catch up, and is walking at 3.5 miles per hour. If Jake had a three hour head start, how long will it take Bob to catch up, and how far will he have walked?

(s=9, e=5, n=6, d=7, m=1, o=0, r=8, and y=2)
Jake has already gone three hours, which at 2.5 miles per hour is 7.5 miles. Since Bob is walking 1 mile per hour faster, it will take him 7.5 hours to catch up. At 3.5 miles per hour, this means he will have walked 26.25 miles.
