The number of ways the 10 distinct digits can form distinct numbers is given by

10!.

So the probability is 10! divided by the number of possible outcomes.

The first digit on the right can be any number from 0 to 9 so ten choices

1/10 so far

the second digit (tens place) can be one of 9

1/10 * 1/9

the third can be one of 8 remaining

1/10 * 1/9 * 1/8

etc

get the picture?

No, you will not get a whole number

a probability is a number between 0 and 1

1/10! which is about .00000027
