“Granddad, I’ve got a great big Easter egg in a square box!”. My grandson Liam inspired this Teaser in which I have used non-zero digits then consistently replaced them with letters, using different letters for different digits.

In this way, I have:

EASTER       EGG ²       BOX

Two of the numbers add to make the third, and if I told you which number was largest you should be able to solve this Teaser.

Send in your BOX.

    I tried permuting the digits in ascending and descending order – the latter was much faster than the former.
