Three Fractions II (Posted on 2012-10-01) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Each of the letters should be replaced by a different digit from 1 to 9 to satisfy this alphanumeric equation:

 A     C     E
--- + --- + --- = 1, with A > C > E
 B     D     F
Can you solve it, knowing that if I told you whether CA is a prime number or not, you would be able to tell me all the other letters?

Note: CA denotes the concatenation of the digits.

3/9 + 2/4 + 1/6 = 1.  CA = 23 (prime)

or

4/8 + 3/9 + 1/6 = 1  CA = 34 (not prime)

Both are derived from 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/6 = 1
