    GAMES

    As the result is one digit more than the numbers, it can be easily found that there is a carry over and therefore G must be equal to 1.

    Since the result is one digit more than the numbers, it is quite obvious that there is a carry over and therefore G must be equal to 1.

    BASE 7483

    BALL 7455

    GAMES 14938

    At extreme (worst) case Let A = 9, B = 9 (though it is not possible as A and B are different)

    BA 99
    + BA + 99
    ———– ————-
    GAM 198

    G will always be 1.

    G should be 1,since we are adding BASE+BALL both are of 4 digit and the result we are getting is GAMES which is of 5 digit so the G we are getting is the carry of the Addison of B and B. And we know the value of carry is 1 always.
