wow... very good teaser, though I thought this to be more of a Logic brainteaser than a Math brainteaser

well there is more than one number. I found the following number that also satisfy the conditions: 222.456.564

I think you are only supposed to use each of the digits 1-9 ONCE.
You can't repeat 2, etc.
I agree with the logical nature, too. I didn't do much math.

i actually found deciphering the sixth statement as easy, because i can actually mentally determine if a number is divisble by 7, and what remainder it would have after the division (fast)

I meant that, comparing to others, this is the hardest.

I tried to make another number - but looks like you were right, the highest I got up to was 1,620,549 without repeating digits.

Great teaser! My process of solving it was exactly the way you describe it, down to the order of checking for division by 7.

I do agree that this is more of a logic brain teaser than math...although knowing the rules for divisibility requires some minimal math knowledge.
