Q1.

The minimal Z solution is 15653859495417504 and
we have Z=123759648*126485973=123847956*126395784.

The maximal Z solution is 969335648653288752 and we have
Z=981763542*987341256=981564732*987541236

Q2.

Z = 786392845167493125 is the maximal twice zero-less pandigital solution.
And we have: Z = 817934625 * 961437285 = 879321645 * 894317625.

The minimal twice zero-less pandigital solution. Z = 112249549788637635  and we have:
Z = 142768593 * 786234195 = 157246839 * 713842965.
