There is a ten-digit mystery number (no leading 0), represented by ABCDEFGHIJ, where each numeral, 0 through 9, is used once. Given the following clues, what is the number?

1) A + B + C + D + E is a multiple of 6.
2) F + G + H + I + J is a multiple of 5.
3) A + C + E + G + I is a multiple of 9.
4) B + D + F + H + J is a multiple of 2.
5) AB is a multiple of 3.
6) CD is a multiple of 4.
7) EF is a multiple of 7.
8) GH is a multiple of 8.
9) IJ is a multiple of 10.
10) FE, HC, and JA are all prime numbers.

I went about solving it differently.

1) J = 0 because IJ is a multiple of 10.
2) D & H are even (because CD and GH are even) and E and C are odd and not 5 because FE and HC are prime, and neither F nor H is 0.
3) C+D+E is even, so A+B is even since A+B+C+D+E is even. D+H+J is even, so B+F is also even since B+D+F+H+J is even. This means A, B & F must all be even or all be odd. Since three even numbers are already accounted for, A, B & F are odd, making G and I even.
4) E and F are odd and EF is a multiple of 7, so there are two possibilities for EF: 35, 91. G and H are even and GH is a multiple of 8, so there are three possibilities for GH: 24, 48, 64. F+G+H+I+J is a multiple of 5. F+G+H+J is one of 5+2+4+0 = 11, 1+2+4+0 = 7, 5+4+8+0 = 17, 1+4+8+0 = 13, 5+6+4+0 = 15, or 1+6+4+0 = 11. I is even, so to get a multiple of 5 by adding I to each of those, I has to be 4, 8, 8, 2, 0, or 4, respectively. Only two combinations for FGHIJ are possible: 12480 and 14820. Both these have F = 1, so F = 1 and E = 9. Also, since GHI = 248 or 482, D = 6 (the only remaining even number).
5) A is 3, 5 or 7 since A is odd and 0A is prime. A+B is divisible by 3 and B is odd and not 1 or 9. The possibilities for AB are 57 and 75. This means C = 3, the only remaining odd number.
6) A+C+E+G+I is a multiple of 9. C+E = 12, so A+G+I = 15 (because A is at least 5, A+G+I can't be 6). The possibilities for A+G+I are 5+2+8 = 15, 7+2+8 = 17, 5+4+2 = 11, or 7+4+2 = 13. So A = 5, G = 2 and I = 8. This leaves B = 7 and H = 4.

Took less than ten minutes.
