A reason to complain (Posted on 2018-05-12) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Everyone complains about the weather without trying to do something about it....

You could help by solving the alphametic:

PEEVE*PET=WEATHER

P must be less than 4 to give a 7-digit product.

The last digit of E*T is R so E isn't 0 or 1 as that results in E=R. But (P,E)=(3,2) is already too big as it gives an 8-digit result so P=1 or 2.

I then listed possible values of (E,T) for a given R.  There are surprisingly few, only around 20.  Next I built an excel page where I could input (P,E,T), let V vary over all digits, and check the product.

I found a single solution:  25575*258=6598350.
