Noble numbers are such that they only involve different digits and are multiple of all their digits. What is the largest noble number?

Hmmmm…. Brute force? Since the maximal number of digits is 10, one may as well try:

k=soz=9
for (t in 1:1e3){
sol=1
while (sol<10^(k-1)){ u=sample(0:8,k);i=digit2int(u) if (max(i%%u[u>0])==0) soz=max(soz,sol<-i)}}

which returns 9875643120… (I made the conscious choice to exclude zero from the dividers. Which was not a choice spelled out in the original question.)
