Re A previous Challenge Problem

In Spanish, the first ten counting numbers are: uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, and diez. In a cryptarithm, numbers are represented by replacing their digits by letters; a given letter consistently represents the same digit and different letters represent different digits. Leading zeroes are not permitted. This month's problem is to solve the Spanish cryptarithm:

SEIS is a triangular number,
SIETE is a prime number, and
DIEZ is a triangular number.

ANS.
SEIS =6786
SIETE = 68767
BIEZ = 9870

Regards.

Bill J.
