Put the digits 1 to 9 (using each digit exactly once) in the boxes so that the sums are correct. The sums should be read left to right and top to bottom ignoring the usual order of operations. For example, 4+3×2 is 14, not 10. Today's number is the product of the numbers in the red boxes.

Arrange the digits 1-9 in a 3×3 square so: each digit the first row is the number of letters in the (English) name of the previous digit, each digit in the second row is one less than the previous digit, each digit in the third row is a multiple of the previous digit; the second column is an 3-digit even number, and the third column contains one even digit. The number in the first column is today's number.
each digit is the number of letters in the previous digit
each digit is one less than previous
each digit is multiple of previous
