129 again (Posted on 2010-09-15) Difficulty: 3 of 5
There is a four digit number such that when multiplied by a single digit produces another four digit number i.e. "ABCD"*E="FGHI " (the letters between the quotation signs designate a concatenation, not the product).

The letters represent 9 non-zero distinct digits.

Find the two existing solutions to this 9-digit problem.

Mod 9, the three numbers must sum to 0 and the product of the first two must equal the third.

There are only 6 possibilities:

0*0=0
4*1=4
1*4=4
3*6=0
6*3=0
7*7=4

Of course, E cannot be 1 or 9, so E must be 3 or 4 or 6 or 7.

And FGHI must equal 0 or 4 (mod 9).
