Wrong Division (Posted on 2004-12-03) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The following long division problem is not correct. In fact, none of the digits is what it should be.

Change each of the digits to a different digit so that the arithmetic is correct.

Note that there is no remainder, no leading zeroes, and like digits are not necessarily all changed to the same digit.

Another observation | Comment 4 of 8 |

The 1 in the 4321 times the divisor makes a 2-digit number. That units digit must be at least a 2. So 2 times the divisor is still 2 digits long.

That narrows the divisor to a range of 20-49. Dunno how much that helps.
