Just by looking it was easy to see the last digit of the first number would be 1. That got us down to needing 2 digits or 99 possibilites. I got stuck there and just made a spread sheet that multiplied 1001 - 1999 x 417 and looked for the answer. In other words - I cheated.

1??1

X 417

-----------

7x47

1xx10

4xx400

------------

???057

So, we know 7x47, so we get 1?21, and then 1x210

1?21

X 417

-----------

x7x47

x1x210

4xx400

------------

???057

So, 10-4-2=4, then we have 7447, that makes 1921,

1921

X 417

-----------

x7x47

x1x210

4xx400

------------

???057

Then just do the math to fill in the rest of the x'* and ?'*.
