  1. It could be that I am misunderstanding the question but I think the posted solution would require us to use the number 1 twice as it appears in vector a and as the scalar.

    • Thank you for catching that! Yes, the original solution omitted the scaler. One possible solution would be with a scaler of 1.

      I wonder if the scaler is trivial…

      • I like the scalar personally … it brings one more of the 9 digits into play … I wonder if there is a solution with a scalar that isn’t 1? I don’t have time to play right now.
