What is the value of "?" ? (Posted on 2017-04-06) Difficulty: 4 of 5
It is a well-known fact that
eleven+two=twelve+one
is an anagram equality
and
1 + 12 = 2 + 11
may be viewed as a palindrome.

After solving two independent alphametics:
(i). two*one=pigeon
and
(ii). twelve-eleven=equal

use your head to assign a digit to the ? in this puzzle's title,
to make 027 028?9
a meaningful expression.

027 02828 makes a nice rhyming pair of words if we use (i) for the first word and (ii) for the second.

I'm unsure of my solution because it is neither an anagram nor a palindrome.  I don't understand how this makes the top half of the problem relevant.
