I have chosen 10 different letters of the alphabet before **U** to represent the digits 0 to 9. I can tell you that 0’s letter is in the word **NOUGHT**, 1’s letter is in the word **ONE**, 2’s letter is in **TWO**, and so on up to 9’s letter, being in the word **NINE**.

Furthermore, I can write down a particular five-figure number that is divisible by 8, and replacing the digits by their letters I get **EIGHT**. Similarly, a four-figure number divisible by 9 translates to NINE.

What number is represented by **TEN**?
