In this alphametic equation, each of the capital letters in bold denotes a different base ten digit from 0 to 9, and x is any positive integer ≤ 16. None of R and T can be zero.
REKNIT 9*x
 = 
TINKER 9*x + 1
Determine the minimum value of REKNIT and maximum value of TINKER.

While I can concur with your REKNIT TINKER values, and the Max and Min, I cannot accept your claim to the value for x.
Firstly no REKNIT/TINKER ratio has a value of .999999.. which is the ratio if x=10989.
Secondly the problem text does say that x≤16.
