"a six digit number"
 
   Hello. I found your e-mail address on the net. My name is Virgil Lewis and I live in Chicago.

I have a puzzling math question with which I was hoping you may have some input. It's as follows:

What 6 digit # when multiplied by any number between 1 and 7 yields a 6 digit # comprised of the same 6 digits in a different sequence?

If you have any suggestion, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

Virgil Lewis

   This is a classic problem. Would it help if I told you that the first two digits are 1 and 4, and there is no 6, nor 9.
