Capital City Conclusion (Posted on 2014-03-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
In the alphametic: ABC+DEF= 495, the letters A to F denotes a different digit in {1,2,3,6,7,8}.

What are :
6 * 8 * 1 * 2 * * and 8 1 * 6 2 * * 1, when each of them denotes the capital city of a country? Each asterisk denotes a letter (whether same or different) that is not included in the alphametic.
