## DIGITAL MULTIPLICATION.

(

Money Puzzles)

Here is another entertaining problem with the nine digits, the nought

being excluded. Using each figure once, and only once, we can form two

multiplication sums that have the same product, and this may be done in

many ways. For example, 7 x 658 and 14 x 329 contain all the digits

once, and the product in each case is the same--4,606. Now, it will be

seen that the sum of the digits in the product is 16, which is neither

the highest nor the lowest sum so obtainable. Can you find the solution

of the problem that gives the lowest possible sum of digits in the

common product? Also that which gives the highest possible sum?
