BRIAN = LINDA = LEVIK = CORAL (Posted on 2006-12-08) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Can you find a five-figure number, with distinct digits between 1 and 9, which satisfies all of the following encoded equations?

BRIAN x 2 = CONGA
LINDA x 3 = NAILER
LEVIK x 4 = VARIED
CORAL x 6 = NESTED

Repeated letters within an equation indicate the replication of digits. However, the same letter in different equations does not necessarily refer to the same digit.

The options are as follows.

BRIAN x 2 = CONGA

13489 x 2 = 26978
15489 x 2 = 30978
16489 x 2 = 32978
17642 x 2 = 35284
31489 x 2 = 62978
35142 x 2 = 70284
35642 x 2 = 71284
45163 x 2 = 90326

LINDA x 3 = NAILER

45163 x 3 = 135489
70261 x 3 = 210783

LEVIK x 4 = VARIED

45163 x 4 = 180652
89324 x 4 = 357296

CORAL x 6 = NESTED

26309 x 6 = 157854
28945 x 6 = 173670
30947 x 6 = 185682
45163 x 6 = 270978
46513 x 6 = 279078

Although the rubric of the puzzle excludes zeroes from the five-figure number, I have included them in the solution, merely for reference. In conclusion, therefore, the only number which satisfies all equations is 45163.
