Fun Friday: Can You Figure it Out?


What makes this number unique — 8,549,176,320?

Hint: You are all thinking too hard. Think of the numbers in word form.

Catherine has it. The numbers are in alphabetical order when written out in word form.

Highest number without a repeating number.

It uses all the numbers 0-9 only once with no number being repeated.

It's not the highest number that uses all digits with none repeating. That would be 9,876,543,210.

Nor does it qualify as "unique" by using all digits with none repeating. Discounting numbers where the first digit is zero (because human beings generally disregard those digits), there are 322,560 such numbers. If the first digit is allowed to be zero, there are 362,880 such numbers.
