Quandaries
and Queries 

Hi! My name is Dante and I am interested in knowing how to answer the following question: Which number is greater: 888....88 X 333...33 or 444.......44 x 666........67 (each of the numbers has 1989 digits)? Please if you know the answer let me know it as soon as possible. Thanks in advance 

Hi Dante, This is a nice problem. Perhaps you should first use factoring Claude
