    abcdef
    a=b+4
    c=f-1
    de=af

    Let's see what de can be, and what af could then be. Remember that a>=5, since b>=1
    de: af
    14: 72 b=3 c=1 no
    15: 53 no, odd
    16: 82 b=3 c=1 no
    18: 92 b=5 c=1 no, or 63 b=2 c=1 no
    21: 73 no, odd
    24: 83 no, odd
    27: 93 no, odd
    28: 74 b=3 c=3 no
    32: 84 b=4 no
    36: 94 b=5 c=3 no
    42: 67 no, odd; 76 b=3 c=5 YES
    54: 69 no, odd; or 96 b=5 no
    56: 78 b=3 c=7 no, or 87 b=4 c=6 no
    63: 79 or 97 no, both odd
    72: 89 no, odd; 98 b=5,c=7 no

    So, we are left with 735426
