    Hey Sulfur and welcome to the forums.

    Is this * the same digit for all * or can it be different?

    any number you like. but you have to use a least 3-5 different numbers.

    (isn't it hard? :P )

    Start working backwards: choose any four digit number to start off with the remainder and work your way upwards.

    When you get towards the top you can introduce the minimum number of variables to generate whatever number you want.
