A five-digit number has five different place settings which can take on various values. The first digit can take on nine values, from 1 to 9. For the second through fifth digits any number between 0 and 9 can be used. To find the total number of combinations, these values are then multiplied together: 9 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 90,000 total combinations.
