Can you find a ten digit where the 1st digit equals the number of zeroes, 2nd digit equals number of 1's, third digit equals number of 2's and so on...

I'm guessing that there are several solutions to this!?

Here's mine:
6210001000

There are six 0's two 1's and one 2!

I shouldn't have been so cocky before as I've had to edit this twice already

Hey there, I think you still have this one wrong. Your puzzle states: "Can you find a ten digit where the 1st digit equals the number of zeroes, 2nd digit equals number of 1's, third digit equals number of 3's and so on.."

6210001000 does not meet this criteria. "third digit equals number of 3's" Your third digit is a one and so there should be one three in your answer. Or perhaps your question has a typo?

Damn my dyslexia!
It must be a typo, otherwise the etc wouldn't make sence.

I started with all 0s too and arrived at the same solution..
Is that the only possible solution?
