How many 10-digit integers are digitally average?

we can use generating functions to solve this problem.  If we allowed leading zeros then we could simply use the coefficient of x^45 from the expansion of (1+x+x^2+...+x^9)^10 which turns out to be 432457640.  To eliminate those which have leading zeros we can subtract the coefficient of x^45 from (1+x+x^2+...+x^9)^9 which is 40051495.

Subtracting these two we get
432457640-40051495=392406145

so there are 392,406,145 such 10-digit numbers
