Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, because you're looking for ways in which a number does not repeat, you're going to need to use permutation. So, you'd take the total numbers that you have (5), and "permut" that by the 3 choices of number that you need. So: 5P3 Hope this helps!! ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0odd no.  so the last digit can be either 9 or 3 > 2 ways. choose and arrange any 2 outta remaining 4 digits = 4P2 so no. of possible of possible nos. = 2 * 4P2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This would give you a total of 60 nonrepeating choices.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0FOLKS! @ParthKohli and @LyraElizabethAdams  seems like you missed out that 'odd' word in the question  just like I did in the beginning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So there is a fixed value of the last digit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You'd need to make sure, then, that you only count the numbers for which 8 is not at the end  8 is an even number and would make the number even.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@goformit100  that last one would be '2'  won't it?dw:1338570736125:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because there are 3 for the first, 2 for second, 2 for third, it'll be 3 * 2 * 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@apoorvk BUt there is only one odd number; then last must be 2 na.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah so I am correct. 3 * 2 * 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just told you  the last digit has to be odd for the whole no. to be odd. and you have two odd digits in the array  3 and 9. so choosing any one of them = 2 ways. now the remaining two digits = i can use any 2 from the 4 digits now left in the array, so 4P2, or 4x3. so, ways of selecting the no. = 2 x (4x3) = 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are two digits according to me  '3' and '9'  if we are on earth that is. _

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But wait, there are 3 possibilites for the first because we don't have digits repeated. 2 for second. 2 for third.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Aren't there 3 for first, 2 for second, 2 for third because the digits cant repeat?

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm. okay  howzzit '3' choices for the second last digit  after I have chosen one od one, I still have 4 choices in the bank  I can pick any outta those 4. so that makes or 4 choices for the middle digit (or the first one, doesn't really matter)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@apoorvk: If you put 0 in the 100th place then it won't be a 3 digit number.
