    To be divisible by 5 the last digit must be either 0 or 5

    So, 2/number of different digits we can choose for the last digit = 2/5

    If the first digit is 5 then the last digit must be 0 If the first digit is 7 then the last digit can be either 0 or 5

    Which gives No. of numbers divisible by 5 greater than 5000 = 1*1*3*2+1*2*3*2

    And No. of numbers that can be formed greater than 5000= 2*4*3*2 as the first digit must be either 5 or 7
