Here,
I will use combination to solve the problem.

From 1982 to 1980 we have = 3 years

SO the number given = 6344409, where first 2 digit is the number of years and then we have remaining 5 digit

so the first 2 digit can be filled up in = 3 ways

The remaining 5 digits can be filled up in $$= 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10$$(since they are not restrictive and we can choose any number from 0 to 9)

SO the total number of ways = $$3 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 = 300,000$$
