Product equality and difference puzzle

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    Substitute each of the capital letters by a base ten digit from 0 to 9 to satisfy this set of cryptarithmetic equations. None of the numbers can contain any leading zero.

    ABC*D=C*BCD, and:
    BC-CA-AD= 5

    a = 1
    b = 4
    c = 2
    d = 6

    142 * 6 = 2 * 426
    42 - 21 - 16 = 5
