You lost me with your answer, but I got the correct answer writing it out and had fun doing it!

4 - 3 - 8 - 2 - 5 - 1 - 9

Scallio, you're wrong. I said the PRODUCT, not the SUM.

Pretty nice solution. I actually solved it pretty quick just by guessing.

You need to satisfy ab = de and cd = fg. I tried d = 0 and 1 and quickly saw those don't work. When I got to d = 2, I saw 3 * 6 = 2 * 9 and 2 * 4 = 1 * 8.
