And so on ? up to how many digits ?

10^3 is divisible by 4 and 10^4 is divisible by 5 so that the conditions
on the fourth and fifth digits boil down to 10^2*c+10b+a being divisible
by 4 and 5 in supplement to 3, iow divisible by 60. This implies a==0 but you
seem to say that a must be in [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9].

Not really :)
