Ambiguous PIN Code (Posted on 2010-11-17) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Susan couldn't quite remember her bank PIN code.

She knew:

  • It had 4 or 5 digits.
  • It used 4 or 5 different digits.
  • The first digit is 4 or 5.
  • The second digit is 4 or 5 and none of the other digits is smaller.
  • The number is 4 or 5 times a prime number.
  • If you reverse the order of the digits, the resulting number has 4 or 5 prime factors, all different.
  • In 4 or 5 of these facts, the "4" is the correct number.

What is Susan's PIN code?

Look again.

Interesting "inside" quip, though at the end of broll's comment.
