ok that's how i solved this problem

AAA is 111 (we can't use 222 because 222/2 is a three digit number)

so now we know that 111=1B+CD B can be 3 to 8 => CD is 98 to 93

C=9

Answer is D

is not it too easy to guess AAA as 111 cux no 2 digit integers sum up more than 198. therefore AAA cannot be other than 111 and to have 111, C must be 9.

adding my two cents:

The max value that AAA can get is when

AB = 99 and CD = 99

AB+CD = 198

so A has to be 1. when A=1 then AAA=111

1B+CD = 111

If C = 8 then the max value is 19+89 = 108 which is less then 111

so C has to be 9 !

13+98 = 111 or 18+93 = 111

:-D
