In general, the digits inside of each number should be descending from left to right, since the left-most digits have a multiplier of 100.

So 8 and 9 occupy the left-most digits, and 4 and 6 the second.

Pair 4 with the greater digit, i.e. 9, and 6 with the smaller (8).

Proceed this way for the right-most digits.

Post what you've got if you wish.
