  1. Interesting, start with an observation.
    To have 11 digits, we must have a 1 at the start, (for long distance?)
    Since the area code of Harvard and most of Massachusetts is 617, and there is no 7 in his scrambled number ...... ?????
    anyhow .....

    we must see 080 as a block of numbers by #1
    #2, we could have a block of 0806, 0808 , but there is only one 8 and I used it, so it must be 0806
    #3 we must have 1 xxx xx1 xxxx
    possibilities so far:

    1 x08 061 xxxx
    1 080 6x1 xxxx , not possible, no area code starts with 0
    1 xx0 806 1xxx, not possible, 1 not in 7th place, violates #3
    1 xxx xx1 0806

    numbers left over: 42454
    For #4, the only two numbers left with a difference of 1 are 4 and 5
    with 5 in 5th and 4 in 6th position
    so we are down to 1 xxx 541 0806

    Sofar all conditions including #5 are met , we have 4,2,4 left
    Can't meet any of the remaining conditions!

    Check over my logic, I can't see any error in it

  3. If that is the answer, it is an invalid phone number, as I stated in my
    first part of the reply.

    All phone numbers in the US and Canada have a 3 digit area code
    followed by 7 numbers for a total of 10 digits.
    If you call long distance, usually you have to put a 1 in front, but it is
    usually not written. Since Harvard is in Mass, you answer is not a valid
    phone number.
    e.g. one phone number for Harvard:
    Harvard University Public Affairs & Communications
    Tel: (617) 495-1585
