Find the highest number where:

1: all digits are different

2: the sum of its digits is a 2digit number whose 2 digits do not appear in the number

Example:

number : 754

7 + 5 + 4 = 16 : 1 and 6 do not appear in 754

1: all digits are different

2: the sum of its digits is a 2digit number whose 2 digits do not appear in the number

Example:

number : 754

7 + 5 + 4 = 16 : 1 and 6 do not appear in 754

Yes, I do. Here's a slightly different kind: Use digits 1,2,3,4,5 once each and in ASCENDING order. Allowed: brackets, concatenation, + - / * ^ ! ; NOTHING else! Here's from 1 to 100: 1: 1^2345 2: 1^23 - 4 + 5 3: 123 - 4! * 5 4: -1^234 + 5 5: 1^234 * 5 6: 1^234 + 5 7: 123 + 4 - 5! 8: (12 * 3 + 4) / ...

Well, decided to use "squared":

7squared + 7squared - 7/.7 = 88

7squared + 7squared - 7/.7 = 88

I found this quite interesting: A loan of $3000 over 24 months is obtained. The rate will be 9% annual compounded monthly for the 1st year, then 12% annual compounded monthly for the 2nd year. What is the required monthly payment over the 24 months? Part 2: a = 3000, u = .09/12, v = .12/12, p = mont...
