### All the digits.

Expanding on this post by shiwaji:
http://www.mathisfunforum.com/viewtopic … 25#p116925

solve:

Use the digits 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 for the letters a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j.
Each letter stands for a different digit.
No leading digits can be 0. In other words 460 is OK but 046 isn't. For instance with

a=9
b=2
c=3
d=4
e=5
f=6
g=7
h=8
i=2
j=0

you would have:

Of course that example is not true because 92/345 + 67/820 ≠ 1. It is just for illustration.

Find those that are true.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Hi Bobby,

I used Janet's (LibertyBasic) program from shiwaji's "Sum of fractions which equals 1" thread - with some adjustments for your problem - and it found only the solutions you posted above.

Hi phrontister;

That prog can get all these types of problems.

Eventually...it took 15 minutes.

Had time to wash the dishes, dry them, put them away, fill the kettle, boil the kettle, make a cuppa...came back to the computer...it was still thinking.

Hi phrontister;

LBasic isn't exactly speedy.
