If a, b, and c are different numerals between 1 and 9 (inclusive), and
aaaaaa = b * c * bc * (c+c-b) * (c+b+b) * (c-b),
what are a, b, and c?
Note: Adjacent numerals are multi-digit numbers made of those numerals, not the product; i.e., if m=2 and n=3, then mn=23.
I have solved this problem using the P&P method but will post my solution AFTER people have had a chance to write computer programs to solve it, ;-)
