If I write the sum of money, L987, 5s. 41/2d., and add up the digits,
they sum to 36. No digit has thus been used a second time in the amount
or addition. This is the largest amount possible under the conditions.
Now find the smallest possible amount, pounds, shillings, pence, and
farthings being all represented. You need not use more of the nine
digits than you choose, but no digit may be repeated throughout. The
nought is not allowed.
