How many combinations are there for a 8 digit number?

00,000,000 - 99,999,999
Since 9 is the highest single digit number if you were to make your password all nines then I believe that would give you the total amount of possibilities that the password could be.
I may be wrong but I am almost positive I am not.
If you were to try and guess a single digit password from 0-9 you would actually have ten different possibilities not nine because you include zero as a possibility.
So I guess the accurate answer to this question would be 100,000,000

The above answer is very seriously wrong because the person answering does not know the difference between a combination and a permutation. In a combination, the order of the digits does not matter. Thus 123 is the same as 321.
The calculations are rather complex becuase they depend on the number of times a digit is repeated.
