Subject: odd math question

My teacher told the class if we could get this right we would get
extra credit on our next test. She said to get the help any way we
could because it was very tricky. ok here it goes.
Pick a number over one-thousand but not like 1111 it has to be
something like 1,234 then take that number and re-arrange it like
3,421 and then subtract the greater number of the to. so it would be
3,421-1,234 so it would be 2,187 then out of those numbers pick one
number so i would for intance pick the 7. she then takes the paper
with 218 on it and not the 7 and she comes up with me picking the
number 7. The thing is picking any number over 1,000. So any help
would be helpful.
