 Digit permutation (Posted on 2013-03-03)
735 is a 3-digit base ten positive integer formed by a permutation of the digits 3, 5 and 7 and, 735 is divisible by each of 3, 5 and 7.

Determine the minimum value of N with N ≥ 11 such that there exists a 3-digit base-N positive integer p which is formed by a permutation of the digits 3, 5 and 7 such that p is divisible by each of 3, 5 and 7. What is the next smallest value of N with this property?

I get 753 (base 19) as being divisible by 105 base 10.
753 base 19 = 2625 base 10 = 25*3*5*7
So the solution is that N = 19

Also 537 base 26 = 3465 = 33*3*5*7

And base 31 is interesting, because both 357 and 735 work
Other bases with two solutions are base 61,  91, 136 and base 166
