Sum number equals integer (Posted on 2011-06-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Each of the small letters in bold represents a different base x digit from 0 to x-1 to satisfy this alphametic equation. None of the numbers can contain any leading zero.

                              (x-1)*number = integer

Determine the minimum positive integer value of x such that the above equation has at least one solution. What is the next smallest value of x having this property?

With base 14 the alphametic can be solved in several ways.  One way is:
 9a23537    B=12=c E=3 G=5 I=9 M=8 N=10=a R=7 T=2 U=6
+ a68c37
--------
 a68c370
