I think what you are saying may be wrong. I reason out as follows:

See since we are multiplying 4 whole numbers, the numbers of ways in which any of the numbers (0, 1...9) can come in the end(units place) is 4. So according to me the total number of ways should be 104.

And hence 1,3,7,9 can come in units place in 44 ways so the answer should be:

44/10= (2/5)4

Please correct me if i''m wrong and plz tell me why.
