    Step-by-step explanation:

    There are 5 digits in the number. To form a five digit number, we can have any digit in the 5th place except 0 because 0 will cause the number to be a 4 digit one.

    So, the number of ways we can fill the 5th place is 9.

    For the 4th place, we can have any digit from 0-9. Same goes for the 3rd, 2nd as well as the One's place.

    Finally we can multiply them and get your answer which is 9*10*10*10*10 which results in 90000.

    Unless of course this is an actual code in which the 5th place can be 0. Then that would make the amount 10*10*10*10*10, or 100,000
