Substitute each of the letters by a different decimal digit from 1 to 9 to satisfy this cryptarithmetic equation:

A/(BC) + D/(EF) + G/(HI) = 1

where, each of BC, EF and HI represents a two digit positive integer.

It's possible, but it ain't pretty. As in, 2 of the fractions you'll need aren't reducible to common things like 1/3 or 1/8, etc. The other fraction's pretty normal.
