Divide by one thousand and equate the ratios

  1. Oct 12, 2008 #1
    Substitute each of the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H by a different decimal digit from 0 to 9 to satisfy this crytarithmetic equation:

    (ABC)/(DEFC) = (GHA)/1000

    Note: None of A, D and G can be zero.

    I found 2 different answers-- and it turns out it doesn't matter if A, D, or G are zero, allowing them to be zero doesn't affect the answer. Interestingly, D turns out to be the same in each solution, but none of the other letters are the same.
