Since zero is not an option, it must end in 5. Also, we need to note that using the digits given, if we start with a 9, we will go over 9000 (because, again, 0 is not an option) Now, assuming we can use each digit more than once, for the first digit we have 4 options, for the next, 5 options, 5 options again (and the last digit just had one option) So we get that there are 100 possibilities.
