    A Numerical Oddity

    A nine-digit number consists of the numerals 1-9. Obviously, that number is divisible by 9. Remove the right-most digit, leaving an eight-digit number that is divisible by 8. Remove the next right-most digit, leaving a seven-digit number divisible by 7... Continue in this fashion until there is one number remaining that is divisible by 1.

    What is the original 9-digit number?
