Answer:

Please read the explanation, because the answer is either #10,000# or #5,040#.

Explanation:

Since there are #10# choices for each digit, the number of #4#- digit combinations is given by
#10*10*10*10 = 10,000#,

UNLESS using a digit means it cannot be used again. In that case, the number of #4#-digit combinations is given by
#10*9*8*7 = 5,040#.
