A friend of mine asks: Can you find a 3X3 matrix of distinct positive
integers with a nonzero determinant divisible by each of the nine
constituent elements?
It's easy to find a matrix with eight of the nine dividing the determinant
-- pick (almost) whatever you want for the first eight, then fit the last
to give a determinant equal to the product of the others.
