LEAF + LEAF + LEAF + LEAF – SNAKES = STPAT
[1] 4653 + 4653 + 4653 + 4653 – 15760 = 2852
[2] 4653 + 4653 + 4653 + 4653 – 15860 = 2752
[3] 8479 + 8479 + 8479 + 8479 – 27340 = 6576
[4] 8479 + 8479 + 8479 + 8479 – 27540 = 6376

that looks like fun, but i wasn’t able to replicate your results. SNAKES, for example, is six letters but the subtraction on the left hand side shows a five digit number. There’s a similar matter on the right hand side with STPAT [5 letters, but 4 digit numbers]
