    French Powers

    I got this from New Scientist magazine. Don't worry, I've already figured it out and it's too late to be sent in for the £15 (it's the first letter opened with the answer in which wins).


    In the following statement, digits have been consistently replaced by capital letters, different letters being used for different digits:

    DIX is the product of two primes, CENT is a square, MILLE is a cube; none of them starts with a zero.

    Which numbers are represented (in this order) by DIX, CENT and MILLE?

    The closing date is the 14th of March, and its the first letter opened
    on that date with the correct answer that wins. But this is metaphor
    for correct answer selected at random, they do not order them by date
    recieved.
