(In reply to solution by reasoning by Ady TZIDON)

Ady, you have reached the same solution which Charlie and I put forward, but we both used exhaustive search programs.  It seems that there might be an approach by reasoning (which some call "analytic").  Of course, trial-and-error probably eventually would find the solutions, but "analytic" usually portends some systematic shortcuts.  I'd be interested to see how you came to the solution.
