Hi tony123;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi;

Good to see you! You are right 125 is an extra solution that does not fit. The method I used came up with all the solutions not just the six digit ones.
I have added that fact to the original post. Appears I just made a silly mistake of being unable to count to 6 correctly.
