    2^6 = 64 and 64-1 = 63, a multiple of nine.

    So is it done by just trying out numbers to show that it has to be greater than 6?

    Sortof, it's finding the least power of 2 that is 1 more than a multiple of 9. That shows that one number is at least that many powers of 2 greater than the other, so they can't possibly have the same number of digits.
