DIGITAL DIVISION.





(Money Puzzles)
It is another good puzzle so to arrange the nine digits (the nought
excluded) into two groups so that one group when divided by the other
produces a given number without remainder. For example, 1 3 4 5 8
divided by 6 7 2 9 gives 2. Can the reader find similar arrangements

pairs of smallest possible numbers in each case? Thus, 1 4 6 5 8 divided
by 7 3 2 9 is just as correct for 2 as the other example we have given,
but the numbers are higher.
