My first answer was: The only number that contains all the digits only once that is also divisible by 10. I have seen a lot of other puzzles that have to do with English representation of numbers but this puzzle is not written well to count out the possibility of other reasons for it being unique. I don't think there is any way of changing the wording without giving hints to the answer so I think we should just call it a nice try, but not a real puzzle.

I don't that is correct. 1,234,567,890 contains all digits only once and is also divisible by 10 ... actually the smallest number which fulfills the conditions.
9,876,543,210 is also another number that contains all digits only once and is also divisible by 10 ... the biggest number which fulfills the conditions.

There are a lot of numbers ...

The first letter of its english names are in alphebetical order.
now solve this one:
135269874
this is a different language --which one?



I'd like to know the solution to this one. It's not French, German, Italian, English or any Slavic language, someone stated that it wasn't Greek or Dutch, I just checked, it's not Hungarian, so I guess it's not Finnish also.

I suppose it's not Indoeuropean at all

Well, it's a linguistic puzzle now, not a logic one, but I'd like to know the answer :)

Hmmm. . .
It's the only 10-digit number that equals exactly 8,549,176,320? :lol:

Wow, that is tough! I found this website with the 200 or so most popular languages and I couldn't find it. I most likely overlooked it though. I was excited when looking at Hungarian, but it fell through. Hawaiian also is kinda close, but didn't hold up either.

There is no other 8,549,176,320, if I have a tattoo on my back there would be no other like it
