Doubt in Counting

How many numbers in the range 1000 -9999 do not have any repeated digit?
In solution how many ways that we can select a digit at 1's place and 10's place , 100's and 1000's .then we multiply them
Consider selecting each digit at particular place is an event so
My question is Are those events are independent or mutually exclusive ?
because in solution we use product rule but those are looking like mutually exclusive events for mutually exclusive we use sum rule right ?
Can you please help me out.
Thank You in advance

There are 9 distinct ways to select the thousands digit (zero must be excluded). There are thus 9 remaining distinct ways to select the hundreds digit. There are 8 distinct ways to select the tens digit, and 7 distinct ways to select the units digit.

So the answer is $9^2 * 8 * 7 = 4536.$

Thank you sir but my doubt is
In counting or probability :

when any events are independent then we use product rule .
Is Converse of this statement is also true ? for e.g : in above solution we have used product rule that's why we multiplied number of ways that we can select at each digit place. Is it mean that those are independent events ?

If you are insisting that the digit chosen for example in the 10's place not be one of the digits chosen in the 1000's or 100's place, then of course that selection is not independent of the previous selections.

Yes sir am insisting that condition:
then those are not independent events that means dependent events
Again question is:Shall we use product rule in solving this dependent events ?
I thought only in case of independent events we use product rule ?.
Please make my understand clear in the relation of product rule and independent events ?

The events are not independent. What you really end up with is a product string of conditional probabilities.

Jeff1 has given you the correct answer and reasoning in post #2.
