# Digit Substitution

Each letter in the following equation can be replaced with a unique digit 0 through 4 such that the statement holds true in base 5.

$$(abcde)(edcba)={aaaaaddcbe}$$

If each letter is replaced with the unique digit that makes the above statement true, what is the value of $$aaaaaddcbe$$ converted to base 10?

Note: An example of substitution would be setting $$a=4, b=3, c=2, d=1, e=0$$. This turns the equation into $$(43210)(01234)=4444411230$$ (which, I might add, is not a true statement in base 5).
