My local antiques dealer marks each item with a coded price tag in which different digits represent different letters. This enables him to tell the whole number of pounds he paid for the item. I bought a tea pot from him tagged MOE.

Inside the tea pot was a scrap of paper which I used to work out his code. The letters AMOUNT I SPENT had been rearranged to make the multiplication sum above.

How much did he pay for the tea pot?
