Hi tony123;


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.

Re: How many six digits

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.
