# Multiplied by 9

Let's find a number, which satisfies the next condition:

Every digit, except the first, is larger than the previous one.

Now multiply it by $$9$$. Let be the amount of the digits of the result $$S$$. Find the maximum of $$S$$.

For example: The number is $$1349$$. $$1349*9=12141$$. The sum of the digits is $$1+2+1+4+1=9$$. So $$9$$ is a possible value of $$S$$.
