GeekDad Puzzle of the Week: Anagramatic Products

Geek Culture

This week’s puzzle is (hopefully) really straightforward, and unambiguous. There are some numbers that, when multiplied by a second number, become anagrams of themselves. For example:

1035 x 3 = 3105
1782 x 4 = 7128

There are fewer numbers that can be multiplied by two or more different numbers and remain anagrams of their former selves. This week’s puzzle: What is the lowest number that remains an anagram of itself when multiplied by 5 different numbers? Note that a number is not considered an anagram of itself and leading zeroes are not allowed.

To qualify for your chance at this week’s $50.00 ThinkGeek gift certificate, please send the number to GeekDad Central. For a second entry into the random drawing, tell me what is special about the number/set of anagrams. Good luck!
