There are 511 oranges and 9 empty boxes. An orange vendor asks his son to place all the 511 oranges in all the 9 boxes in such a manner that if he asks for any number of oranges from 1 to 511, his son should be able to pick them in terms of boxes. How did the son place all the oranges among the 9 boxes, given that any number of oranges can be put in one box?
