1310 as EVEN is a valid answer for any even base 2*b ,b>2

Let O;D;D is represented by b+1;b;b

Then EVEN

"units" = b+b= 2b = 0 and carry=1 N

"tens"= 1 (carried from b+b=2b and carry=1) E

"hundreds" =3 ( b+1+b+1+1=3 and carry=1) V

"thousands"=1 E

16 was set by me as a limit to facilitate use of alphametic solver
