Alphanumeric Puzzle 8 — Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right, Five Do

We all know the old saying “two wrong don’t make a right”. The reason for this, of course, is math. It turns out that WRONG + WRONG = RIGHT has several solutions. But so does RIGHT + RIGHT = WRONG. This is a contradiction! If two wrongs equal a right and two rights equal a wrong, well that’s just wrong. It turns out that the first time we don’t have a contradiction is at five wrongs. WRONG + WRONG + WRONG + WRONG + WRONG = RIGHT, but 5 RIGHTs can’t add up to a wrong. So if you really want to be right, either just be right, or be wrong five times. Also, if you really don’t like rugby, replace RIGHT with RUGBY and you have a new puzzle with the same solutions! Anyway, enough tomfoolery. Let’s get on with today’s puzzle!
