Indexed Puzzle (Posted on 2004-07-19) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Here is a numbered list of statements, some true, some false, which refer to a specific number (unique positive integer, base 10).

It just so happens that if a statement is true then its index number appears among the number's digits, and if a statement is false then its index number does not appear among the number's digits.

  1. The sum of the number's digits is a prime.
  2. The product of the number's digits is odd.
  3. Each of the number's digits is less than the next digit (if there is one).
  4. No two of the number's digits are equal.
  5. None of the number's digits is greater than 4.
  6. The number has fewer than 6 digits.
  7. The product of the number's digits is not divisible by 6.
  8. The number is even.
  9. No two of the number's digits differ by 1.
  10. At least one of the number's digits is equal to the sum of two other digits. (Any of the digits may be equal, as long as all 3 digits are distinct... for example: {2, 2, 4} or {2, 3, 5} )
Find the number.

It's not necessarily true that "If a zero is included, there must be a 9 (0 + x = x)."  The three digits that are involved with rule 9 must be distinct, so a 9 would be presend only if there were a zero and two occurrences of something else, one to serve as the other addend and the other to serve as the sum.
