S C O O B Y
         D O O O
--------------------
 B U S  T  E D

here C should be 9. and U is 0.  S and B are consecutive intezers. B - S = 1. Available values are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.  Take O = 2,

  S 9 2 2 B Y
         D 2 2 2
--------------------
 B 0 S  T  E D
Then D = 8. so Y = 6, Then S also 0. Which is not possible.

If O = 4;

  S 9 4 4 B Y
         D 4 4 4
--------------------
 B 0 S  T  E D
D is either 7 or 8 as 4 + D should be two digit number. If D = 7,then Y = 3, S = 1, B = 2. and E = 6.

   1 9 4 4 2 3
         7 4 4 4
--------------------
 2 0 1  8  6 7
