Well, 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!! ;)

odd 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

This would give you a total of 60 nonrepeating choices.

FOLKS! @ParthKohli and @LyraElizabethAdams  seems like you missed out that 'odd' word in the question  just like I did in the beginning.

So there is a fixed value of the last digit.

You'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.

Ooops  and 0.

Because there are 3 for the first, 2 for second, 2 for third, it'll be 3 * 2 * 2

Yeah so I am correct. 3 * 2 * 2

apoorvk Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I 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

But wait, there are 3 possibilites for the first because we don't have digits repeated. 2 for second. 2 for third.

Aren't there 3 for first, 2 for second, 2 for third because the digits cant repeat?

apoorvk Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Hmm. 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)

@apoorvk: If you put 0 in the 100th place then it won't be a 3 digit number.
