# Solution #38: Product

3024 ends in neither a 5 nor a 0; therefore, none of the four numbers given
can be divisible by 5 or by 10. If all four numbers were greater than 10,
their product would exceed 10,000, which is not the case. The four numbers
must either be {1,2,3,4} or {6,7,8,9}. In the first case, the product is 24.
The answer can only be {6,7,8,9}, as can be easily verified.
