#math trivia #163 solution

The next number with three different digits where two divide into the other is 182.

Several numbers in between satisfy the divisibility requirement, but the digits are not distinct:  166, 171, 177, 181.

Because the “other” digit must have two distinct, smaller divisors, the only possible values it can have are 4, 6, 8 and 9.
