All the digits.Expanding on this post by shiwaji: 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. Last edited by bobbym (20090809 02:09:43) 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. #2 20090819 21:03:33
