 Ordinal Days (Posted on 2010-02-17)
If the days of the week are represented as follows:

```MO TU W TH F SA SU

and are numbered 1 to 7 as follows:

MO TU  W TH  F SA SU
1  2  3  4  5  6  7
```

assign to each letter a non-zero digit so that the numbers represented by the day abbreviations given are each divisible by the digit assigned to that day, but by no higher digit.

I agree with your second solution, but your first one has some problems.

For TU = 78, it is divisible by 2 and 39. 39 is a multiple of 3, meaning that 78 itself is divisible by 3. So, that value, as well as 24 (4x6 = 3x8) don't follow the rules, and thus can't be part of the solution.

So, your first solution is invalid, leaving only the second solution as a possibility.
