Harry, Tom and I each looked to replace each asterisk with a digit in such a way that the two 4-digit numbers and one 3-digit number that could be read across and the 5-digit number that could be read down were all perfect cubes (with no leading zeros).
We each found a different solution that used nine of the ten digits 0-9. Harry’s unused digit was the same as Tom’s.
What was my solution?
