How many integers between $1000$ and $9999$ have four distinct digits?

$\textbf{(A) }3024\qquad\textbf{(B) }4536\qquad\textbf{(C) }5040\qquad\textbf{(D) }6480\qquad \textbf{(E) }6561$

Solution 1

The question can be rephrased to "How many four-digit positive integers have four distinct digits?",since numbers between $1000$ and $9999$ are four-digit integers. There are $9$ choices for the first number, since it cannot be $0$, There are only $9$ choices left for the second number since it must differ from the first, $8$ choices for the third number, since it must differ from the first two, and $7$ choices for the fourth number, since it must differ from all three. This means there are $9 \times 9 \times 8 \times 7=\boxed{\textbf{(B) }4536}$ integers between $1000$ and $9999$ with four distinct digits.
