What is the answer to Lenny Conundrum 228 on Neopets?
The riddle for Round 228 of the Lenny Conundrum contest was,
"The Altadorian Archives are the repository of all Altadorian
knowledge, science, and history. Thousands of books and scrolls
populate its shelves. Amongst these books is the huge, multi-volume
Encyclopedia Altadoria, volumes 1 through 9950.
The archivist misplaced his shopping list inside one of the
books. He has a handy way to remember which volume he placed it in,
though. The volume number was a four-digit number, in which all
four digits were unique. If you take the largest possible
four-digit number that can be made by rearranging the four digits,
and you subtract from that the smallest possible four-digit number
that can be made by rearranging the four digits, the number you get
is volume number, but with the digits in reverse order.
In what volume of the Encyclopedia Altadoria did he leave
his shopping list?"
The answer was 4,716.
