Quiz of the Month (September 2007)

SOLUTION TO LAST MONTH'S QUIZ

  1.  192  

  2.  219  

  3.  327

Notes.

It is not too onerous to solve by hand, bearing in mind the following restrictions:

The number in row 1 must lie between 123 and 329.
It can contain no repeated digit.
It can contain no "0".
Its last digit cannot be "5".

But a computer solution is quicker!
