    You first find the number of four-digit numbers that may be formed from the above set.

    Think of it this way, pick the numbers from right to left, least significant first.

    Can you do that? \[8P4 \] But there is something—we can't place a zero.

    Let's think of slots. _ _ _ _ Four slots. We have 7 choices for the first(there are eight numbers in the set, but we can't place a zero). 7 for the second too(we have a zero with us the second time). 6 for the third. (We already have two numbers filled out of eight). 5 for the fourth. (We have three filled).

    We multiply \(7 \times 7 \times 6 \times 5 \Longrightarrow 49 \times 30 \)

    First find the number of four digit numbers you could make, then divide that by 2.

    every number that ends with a 0,2,4 and 6 is an even number, so if 4 out of 8 digits give you an even number wouldn't that be 50/50?

    @ParthKohli answer is given as 780/1470 not 735/1470?
