Fiona's Telephone Number

When Shrek asks Fiona for her telephone number, Fiona is a bit coy about it, and tells Shrek the following information:

  • My telephone number has 10 digits.
  • There are no repeated digits in my telephone number.
  • The first three digits are in ascending order.
  • The second three digits are in descending order.
  • Both the last four digits and the last two digits are multiples of sixty.
  • My last four digits are not a multiple of 43.
  • My first three digits are the square of an integer less than twenty.
  • The sum of the second three digits is 14.

What number should Shrek dial?
