I don't know how to solve this problem. It says: "Let a,b,c,d digits (a>0), such that 0,abc = a/(b+c+d). Find all the possible values of a,b,c,d" Any sugestion? Thanks!

$0,abc$ ... is that $\dfrac{a b c }{1000}$ ? i.e. the comma is a decimal point?

Yes, it is. I have just write abc(b+c+d)=1000a but I can't solve nothing. Thanks!

Yeah, I get a=1, b=2, c=5, d=1 And with a=2 I get b=5, c=0, d=3 And there are no more solutions. Thanks for the hint

It was stated that a > 0, not that a, b, c, d > 0.
