 There can be no carry from the hundreds column. So, A
 must be 7 to have a two-digit product of 3 that ends in
 1. Thus, E is 2. Then C must be 4 with no carry from the
 units column. Since there is no carry in the units column,
 D must be 3 since 1 and 2 are used and any larger D would
 produce a carry. Thus, F must be 9.

         From the book
           "More Mathematical Puzzles of Sam Loyd" 
            Edited by Martin Gardner
            From: Dover Publications in 1960 (cf,md4,2)

 I recently came upon an old travel book that described some of
 the primitive methods once used for conducting business in the
 Philippines.  The traveling merchant shown in the picture uses
 a balance scale and four metal rings that serve as weights.
 The rings are different weights and sizes and he carries them
 on his arms like bracelets.

 With these four rings, the trader can weigh anything from a
 quarter of a pound up to ten pounds.  These weights enable the
 trader to get within a quarter of a pound of any weight within
 the limits mentioned.

 What are the weights of the four rings?

 The problem is to find three different digits such that, in
 whatever order they are used to make a three-digit number,
 that number will not be divisible by: 3,5,7,11,13,or 17.
 Furthermore, since more than one solution is possible, we
 are looking for the three digits whose product is the greatest.
 To ensure that there is no ambiguity, suppose the three digits
 are a, b, and c. Then, none of the numbers: abc, acb, bac, bca,
 cab, and cba will divide by 3, 5, 7,11,13, or 17 and also the
 product of a x b x c must be as large as possible.

 A lot of the children had illnesses and were out, causing
 various numbers of children to be present each day.  One day
 the teacher noted that if there were five fewer children the
 next day, they would each get two cookies more if she brought
 the same number she had that day.  However, the absentee list
 was low the next day, and she had four more children instead
 of five fewer.  This meant that each received one cookie less

 Miss Tryon is the teacher of a large class of girls at one

 several subjects, including what is vaguely called "handwork,"
 but her principal interest is in mathematics.  "I tried an
 interesting experiment this week," she told me. "I had
 available a large number of beads.  They were of three colors:
 red, yellow, and green.  "I showed my girls how to make seven-
 bead bracelets-the beads are just strung on threads at regular
 intervals-and then I suggested that each girl should make a
 bracelet for herself.  My only condition was that she should
 use three beads of any one color; two of a second color; two
 of a third."

 "And what was the experiment exactly?" I asked.

 "Why," said Miss Tryon, "I wanted to see how many different
 bracelets were produced by these haphazard instructions.
 There were thirty-two, which is about what might have been
 expected.  It would have been possible-but only just possible-
 for every girl to construct a bracelet different in appearance
