Some Thoughts My approximation not a spoiler | Comment 1 of 3

My approximation:

There are 9*10^4  five digit numbers with no leading zero.

There are 7*8^4  five digit numbers with no leading zero,  containing neither 3 nor 7.

So there are 90000-28672 =61328 numbers satisfying condition 1.

Roughly 1/37 of these numbers i.e 1657 are divisible by 37. 

I am happy with this number as an engineer's approximation.

When some solver evaluates the exact number we will comment

upon the accuracy of my approximation.
