    Ms. Sue, wouldn't it be 9^10? I think 0 wasn't included, so it would be 10 numbers not 9.....right???

    I'm not sure.

    For social security numbers, 0 can be included.

    n^r = 10^9, where n is the number of things to choose from, and you choose r of them (Repetition allowed, order matters)

    so it would be 1,000,000,000???
