En francais seulement ! (Posted on 2018-02-09) Difficulty: 3 of 5
six*cinq= trente

The above 9-digit alphametic is solvable (go for it), but the 10-letter English equivalent (six*five= thirty) is not!

Why not? Where's the contradiction?

six*cinq=trente ==>142*5409=768078

To force the same solution in English one has to create a one to one correspondance between the letters in both texts.

An easiest option is to misspell thirty so that the 3rd and the 6th letter match i.e. six*five=thyrty.
