    There are 55 combos using at least one of the 10 digits; 36 of those combos have 3 non-matching digits, 9 of have 1 digit with two other matching digits, 9 have 1 digit twice, and each digit is in 1 combo three times.

        thanks the thought I had cost to much.  you would have to filter out numbers to cut the cost.
