    is this correct \(\large \color{black}{\begin{align} 2^{1}+2^{2}+2^{3}+2^{4}+2^{5}+2^{6}+2^{7}+2^{8}=510\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ \end{align}}\)

    right! Next, look at 9 digit numbers. The left most digit can only be 1. If you fix the left most digit at 1, how many numbers are possible by changing remaining 8 digits ?
