You're sooo great!!!

wouldn't 30010 also work?

^^ No, it wouldn't because the second number says how many 1's are in it, and you said zero. But then you have a one later in the number.

Amusingly enough, when I first did it, I was dead positive it was 30010

I got it pretty quickly by trial and error. May have just been lucky with my first guess. I figured there would be lots of zeros.
