Power and value assignment puzzle

  1. Aug 19, 2009 #1
    Substitute each capital letter in bold by a different digit from 0 to 9, such that (TAU).BETA when rounded off to the nearest integer is equal to PI, and the absolute difference of (TAU).BETA and PI is the minimum. Each of T, B and P is nonzero.

    I underlined a little of your post there...
    Do you mean PI as in π, the ratio of a circle's circumference to it's diameter?

    If so since when is Pi an integer? Is that the puzzle here?

    In the current puzzle, PI is a two digit positive integer in consonance with the requisite substitution in conformity with cryptarithmetic rules and does not have any connection with п.

    The relevant definition of a cryptarithm is given here.
