A digital arrangement (Posted on 2005-06-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Without using any arithmetical symbols (+, -, *, /, or similar; other math symbols; decimal comma or periods; letters; even parentheses) or, in short, anything but the digits, build a number with the digits 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9, that is equal to a number built with the digits 2, 4, 6 and 8 (each digit used once and only once).

Note: This is not a trick. It was extracted from a book edited by Angela Dunn, a mathematician who gathered problems that appeared in many scientific periodical revues!

Hints/Tips re: A slight modification Comment 20 of 20 |
(In reply to A slight modification by Larry)

you say:  "...<2468> in some base n where n>8 is equal to a number in <13579> in some other base m where m>9."


NO CAN DO!  The 1st is always even , the 2d odd.
