Take fives And Sixes, Get N

    The different letters correspond to different digits, with the subscripts denoting the two bases in both sides of this cryptarithmetic equation.

    (ABC)6 = (DBEF)5

    If the common value in each side of the equation is equal to a positive integer N in base 10, what is the minimum value of N?

    Note: None of A or D can be zero.

    (435) = (2301)

    Very good, Caracrist.

    But there seems to be a typing error, since:
    (435)6 = (1132)5

    (2301)5 = (1302)6[/ color],

    Perhaps you inadvertently posted the solution to:

    (ABCD)5 = (DBCA)6

    If so, I must compliment you for an accurate solution of that other problem.
