Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0total number of different numbers = 5 + 20 + 60 + 120 + 120 = 325

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for two digits we have (3 x 4) = 12 different numbers for three digits we have ( 3 x 4 x 3 ) = 36 for four digits we have ( 3 x 4 x 3 x 2 ) = 72 for all five digits we have (3 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 ) = 72

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so , take the 2digit case, first of all we must pick the last digit such that the number will be even ( we can do this in 3 ways ) , then once we have selected the last digit there are 4 digits remaining from which we can pick the second digit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0e.g. four digit case , first we pick the last digit ( which can be done in 3 ways ) then we have 4 digits remaining with which to choose the remaining 3 digits
