 Same Six Digits (Posted on 2014-03-26)
What are the possible values of a six digit positive integer N, where all digits of N are different, and 4*N has the same six digits as N?

Prove that there are no others.

The first digit can be only 1 or 2, which is what the following program checks; the other digits can be any value 0 to 9.

DECLARE SUB addOn (wh#)
DEFDBL A-Z
CLEAR , , 25000
DIM SHARED dig(6), used(9), num, ct

PRINT ct

IF wh = 1 THEN st = 1: fin = 2: ELSE st = 0: fin = 9
FOR i = st TO fin
IF used(i) = 0 THEN
used(i) = 1
num = 10 * num + i

dig(wh) = i

IF wh = 6 THEN
quad = 4 * num
REDIM used2(9)
IF LEN(n\$) = 6 THEN
good = 1
FOR j = 1 TO 6
d = VAL(MID\$(n\$, j, 1))
IF used2(d) > 0 OR used(d) = 0 THEN good = 0: EXIT FOR
used2(d) = 1
NEXT
IF good THEN
PRINT num, quad: ct = ct + 1
IF ct MOD 40 = 0 THEN STOP: PRINT
END IF
END IF

ELSE
addOn wh + 1

END IF

num = num \ 10
used(i) = 0
END IF
NEXT
END SUB

finds 64 values of N
