(2) f – c = 3


C

Need to know c and f.

(1) Insufficient

y = 1 (anything greater than that, and f is a double digit number)
f = 6
a = 2

(2) Insufficient

f could 3-9, c could be 0-6.

(1) and (2) Sufficient

f = 6
6 - c = 3
c = 3

No, thats not it.


Sorry, I didn't read the question carefully. I didn't see that the numbers are distinct.

A

In that case:
2 b c
d e 6
-----
x 1 z

The only possibilities that work are:
2 7 3
5 4 6
-----
8 1 9

or

2 4 3
5 7 6
-----
8 1 9

I explained that in my first post:

y = 1 (anything greater than that, and f is a double digit number)
f = 6
a = 2
