This seems to be going nowhere. Here's what I mean by the iterative process:
From the puzzle: "occurrences of 0 is _, of 1 is _, of 2 is _, of 3 is _, of 4 is _, of 5 is _, of 6 is _, of 7 is _, of 8 is _, and of 9 is _."
Shortening for formatting:
0:_, 1:_, 2:_, 3:_, 4:_, 5:_, 6:_, 7:_, 8:_, 9:_
Seeing that, we see one of ech digit, so fill that in as the first guess:
0:1, 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, 5:1, 6:1, 7:1, 8:1, 9:1
That didn't work, so try counting in the line above and filling in the results:
0:1, 1:11, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, 5:1, 6:1, 7:1, 8:1, 9:1
That still doesn't work, but two more iterations and you are there!
