    3 Quickies

    1#

    When does the following equation become true?

    16 + 53 + 3 + 27 + 7 = 14

    2#

    Alf has decided to take up robbing banks for a living. He is unfortunately a little slow and has forgotten to bring the dynamite to blow open the safe!

    Using logic and the following clues, figure out the 10 digit number to crack the safe.

    *All digits from 0 to 9 are used exactly once.

    *The sum of the 2nd, 5th, 6th and 8th digits is a single digit number.

    *The 4th digit is a perfect square.

    *The 3rd digit is 1.

    *The sum of the 4th and 7th digits is a perfect square.

    *The value of the 10th digit is twice that of the 2nd.

    *The product of the 4th and 6th digits is equal to that of the 10th and 2nd digits.

    *The 5 is is next to the 6 but not the 4.
