What about

289 + 746 = 1035

there are a myriad of solutions.

Can you post your problem solving methods, not just your answers. Unless you simply do trial and error of course.

There are 96 solutions total. There are only 10 values for GHIJ: 1026, 1035, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1098, 1206, 1305, 1503 and 1602.

I'm not a fan of puzzles with more than one solution...
