Over at Lifehacker, Beth Skwarecki wrote a nice article introducing the Digits game at the New York Times. Go check it out. The only thing I'll add is that I find it's easier to factor the target numbers at the start of the puzzle. The larger numbers seem to break down nicely.

To get 462, I factored it as 14 * 33. Combining the numbers to get 14 and 33 is much easier.

As an experiment, I tried to paste the results into the blog. It looks like it worked.
