Sunday Times Teaser 2914 – Bank Statement

by John Owen

Published July 29 2018 (link)

My last bank statement was most interesting. The first line showed the opening balance in pounds and pence, then each of the following four lines showed a debit together with the resulting balance. I did not go overdrawn.

Remarkably, each of the five balances used the same five different digits once only, and the largest of the digits was less than three times the smallest. Each of the four debits also used five different digits once only, but the digits in the debits were all different from those in the balances.

What was the final balance?
