Sunday Times Teaser 2496 – No Title

Published July 25 2010 (link)

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?
