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

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