Step-by-step explanation:The question is fully equivalent to asking how many subsets of length 5 there are of 10 objects (digits 0–9). That number is 10C5, where nCk is the number of ways to choose k objects from a list of 10. The value of that is …

nCk = n!/(k!(n-k)!)

There are 252 ways to choose 5 numbers from the digits 0-9:

10C5 = 10!/(5!(10-5)!) = 10·9·8·7·6/(5·4·3·2·1) = 9·4·7 =

252_____

The order of the selection doesn’t matter, because the selected digits are always arranged in decreasing order to form a decreasing number.
