Of the 1052 four-digit primes, eliminate those with duplicated digits and particularly which do not contain __three__ digits of 1, 3, 7 or 9, to yield 125 prime numbers having four unique digits. Of these, sixteen pairs have the same first two digits with the last two digits reversible (as in POTS and POST). Of these, further eliminate those starting with an even number or 5 (since POTS does reverse to STOP), to yield the following nine candidate pairs for POTS and POST:

1039/1093

__1279__/1297

__1439__/1493

1579/__1597__

3217/__3271__

3517/__3571__

3617/3671

9137/__9173__

9817/__9871__

Of these, only the seven underlined numbers, when completely reversed, yield the following prime candidates (in order) for STOP:

9721

9341

7951

1723

1753

3719

1789

Of these seven possibilities for STOP, move the first digit to last to yield TOPS:

__7219__

3419

9517

7231

7531

__7193__

7891

The only two possibilities for TOPS which are prime numbers are underlined, with T = 7 in both cases. Assigning these two sets of possible digit values to TOPS, SPOT, POTS, STOP, POST and OPTS then yields:

7219

9127

1279

9721

1297

2179 = 30822 = KAZOO

or,

7193

3917

9173

3719

9137

1973 = 35112 = SWOON
