Sunday Times Teaser 2632 – Times Table

by Victor Bryant

I have put the numbers 1 to 16 into a four by four table in an order in which the numbers in each row increase from left to right and those in each column increase from top to bottom.

If the top row is read as one number, it has four digits and is the product of the four numbers in the second row.

What are the four numbers in the second row?

    My approach to this teaser has been to start straight away from 1234 for the top row and move on by factoring ujntil one reaches the point whereby second row carries the factors of the first row.
