One equation with nine unknowns! (2) (Posted on 2012-12-05) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Each of the letters should be replaced by a different base ten digit from 1 to 9 to satisfy this alphanumeric equation:
  A          D        G
------  +  ------ + ------ = 1, with A > D > G, B > C and, E > F   
 B*C        E*F      HI
Can you solve it, knowing that if I told you whether HIG is a perfect square or not, you would be able to tell me all the other letters?

Note: Each of HI and HIG represents the concatenation of the digits.

In line 60 if A>D makes sense but why D>G?  Couldn't G>D also yield solutions?
