Can you find one five-figure number with distinct digits between 1 and 9 which satisfies all four of the following equations?
ASPEN x 2 = BEASTS
LARCH x 3 = STICKY
CEDAR x 4 = STATIC
PLANE x 5 = NACRED
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.
(In reply to re(2): Solution
An alternative, to remain within the forest...
PICEA -- a genus of temperate and Arctic evergreen, coniferous trees, including the Norway spruce and the American black and white spruces.
(Charlie, thanks....typos in my earlier post have been corrected)
