 I Got Your Number (Posted on 2004-04-18)
Lou Zerr is trying to pick up a woman at a bar. The woman, Denise, is reluctant to give out her number, but she gives Lou a clue.

"My sister, Elise and I have the same digits in our phone numbers, just in reverse order. Elise's number is also evenly divisible by mine."

What is Denise's phone number?

(Note: this IS NOT a real exchange, as far as I know. Assume the phone number has 10 digits: 7 digit number + 3 digit area code.)

My lawyer/engineer brother confirms that "evenly divisible by" just means "divisible by, with no remainder". So 9 is evenly divisible by 3. (9 is not oddly divisible by 3).
