125874 shuffled to 251748

Zero
Zero can be written as 00 or 000 also
if you suffule the digits then get 00 and
00 = 2*00

Sorry but you didnt get the question. I asked for a positive numbers as the theory of numbers Zero itself is not positive.
Oh my bad let me work again
Is it 125874 => 251748 but not sure if it is smallest
