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.)
(In reply to re(2): Another non-trivial solution
See, I knew "evenly" was a poor word choice. It's just like that problem of Ravi's... I don't remember which. There's my "I told you so." I probably should have made more of a fuss of it in the queue.
