Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let one digit is fixed to be 1. Then product of two distinct digits must be a perfect cube i.e. (2,4) such that 1*2*4 = 8 = 23 total 3! = 6 combinations (3,9) such that 1*3*9 = 27 = 33 total 3! = 6 combinations One digit is fixed to be 2. (4,8) such that 2*4*8 = 64 = 43 total 3! = 6 combinations One digit is fixed to be 3. (8,9) such that 3*8*9 = 216 = 63 total 3! = 6 combinations One digit is fixed to be 4 (6,9) such that 4*6*9 = 216 = 63 total 3! = 6 combinations
