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 (=10^910^8)
