A PRINTER'S ERROR.





(Money Puzzles)
In a certain article a printer had to set up the figures 5^4x2^3, which,
of course, means that the fourth power of 5 (625) is to be multiplied by
the cube of 2 (8), the product of which is 5,000. But he printed 5^4x2^3
as 5 4 2 3, which is not correct. Can you place four digits in the
manner shown, so that it will be equally correct if the printer sets it
up aright or makes the same blunder?
