**Steve**, Monday, April 29, 2013 at 2:50pmCall the digits a,b,c left-to-right

a = c/2

b+c = 7

b-a = 1

we see that c=2a, so

b+2a=7

b-a=1

subtract to get

3a=6

a=2

Thus c=4 and b=3

R=234

Or, just working with the specs,

c must be even, since it can be divided by 2. So, R is one of the forms

1x2

2x4

3x6

4x8

Since the last two add to 7, R must be

152

234

316

Since 2nd-1st=1,

R=234
