Is it 9^10?? 10 numbers correct?

    If you intepret the string of digits as numbers, then the numbers are between 10^8 and 10^9 -1, so the answer is:

    10^9 - 1 - (10^8 - 1) =

    10^9 - 10^8

    We can use the rule of product:
    the first number we choose from 1 to 9,
    the 2nd, 3rd,...,9th from 0 to 9.
    So the number is
    9*10*10*...*10=9*10^8 (=10^9-10^8)
