Hey this was a fun puzzle... but I thought that i should let you know that there are actually 24 possible solutions to this problem. I can explain how all the solutions are possible if you'd like... It was fun to figure out.

There are lots of solutions for this problem. The only thing that is fixed is that E=4, A=5

F+M must equal to nine so (F,M) can be from the set (0,9)(1,8)(2,7)(3,6)(4,5)(5,4)(6,3)(9,0)

T can be any digit from 0-9

L can be any digit from 0-9

D can be either 1 or 2

if D=2 then B=G=9

if D=1 then (B,G) can be any combination from the set (0,8)(2,6)(3,5)(4,4)(5,3)(6,2)(8,0)

By following these rules you can simply select random pieces and they are solutions to ALFA+BETA+GAMA=DELTA

i have

D=1, A=5, E=4

and

B-G=(2;6) or (6;2)

F-M=(0;9) or (9;0)

L-T=(3;7) or (7;3)

Ex:

F=0 T=3 M=9 L=7 B=2 G=6

ALFA+BETA+GAMA=DELTA --> 5705+2435+6595=14735
