I have a five digit number - no, it's not that easy(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I rearrange the digits and subtract the smaller number from the larger.

The difference is also a five digit number. I jumble up the digits of the difference. Four of the digits of the difference are 2172.

What's the missing digit of the difference?
