Hobsons choice(?) (Posted on 2013-10-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Multiplying cab*car one gets "fur, ciea & bbec"
as partial results;

Multiplying car*cab we get "car, cotu & bbeu" .

Although the final result is the same, it is you who will decide what is better.

Bah! I typed out a whole solution, and then the website logged me out and I lost it. :(

I had initially assumed that both equations were part of the same alphametric. Solving each of them independently, they're still very similar, but I have to say CAB*CAR is indeed better. No way am I typing out all my work again, though. ;)
