    Hello, aznmartinjai!

    It's a trick question . . .


    Describe the number 8549176320 so that you have distinguished it
    from all other ten-digit numbers.

    It is the only ten-digit number containing the digits 0,1,2,...,9 in which
    . . the (English) names of the digits are in alphabetical order.

    "Eight, five, four, nine, one, seven, six, three, two, zero"
