Start with two digits from $1\dots9$ to form a $2$-digit number.

Multiply this number by a single digit from $1\dots9$.

Add the result to another two digit number from $1\dots9$, and calculate the result.

You can only use each digit once.

In other words:

How can the digits $\, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 \,$ all be assigned to the placeholders $\, a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i \,$ so that $\, ab \times c = fg\,$ and $\, fg + de = hi \,$?

($ab$, $de$, $fg$ and $hi$ are explicit two-digit numbers, not products.)

    $\begingroup$ Are you trying to ask us to find a number ab which multiplied by c gives de to which is added fg giving a final result hi, such that each of a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h and i are unique non-zero digits? $\endgroup$ – YowE3K Aug 19 '16 at 3:05

Assuming I understand what you are asking, the answer is:

$17 \times 4 \rightarrow 68 + 25 \rightarrow 93$

Assuming you mean that both the intermediate result ($ab*c$) and the result ($ab*c+de$) are included in the usage of digits condition.

Then

the only answer is $17\times4=68\rightarrow68+25=93$


Assuming you mean that the result ($ab*c+de$) is included in the usage of digits condition.

Then

there are $447$ valid answers, including $3$ which only use $[1,7]$:\begin{align}14\times2+37&=65\\14\times3+25&=67\\16\times2+43&=75\end{align}
