Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2A smaller version of the same problem is to consider only 3 digits, 1,2,3 lets first find how many total 3 digit number can be formed using 1,2,3 only once and digit place cannot be 1 so _ _ _ out of these 3 places, the last digit(units place) has 2 options (2,3) middle place also has 2 options (1, digit not used in units place) and hundred's place only has one option. so total options = 2+2 = 4  now lets break it last digit = 2 _ _ 2 only 2*1 possible numbers (132, 312) and both are divisible by 2 _ _ 3 only 2*1 possible numbers (123, 213) and both are divisible by 3 so for 3 digit case, there are total 4 such numbers and all 4 of them are divisible by their unit's digit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for a 6 digit case, dw:1441517617329:dw so total number of 6 digit numbers with all digit repeating only once and 1 is not in unit's place is \(\large 5\times 5 \times 4 \times 3 \times 2\times 1 = ..\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now lets break it the units digit is only 6 _ _ _ _ _ 6 so there are 5*4*3*2*1 such numbers. (same is true for units digit = 5 or 4 or 3 or 2 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2easiest case is for units digit = 2 and 5 because all the numbers ending in 2 or 5 are divisible by 2 or 5 respectively

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2upon further thoughts since 1+2+3+4+5+6 =21 which is divisible by 3 all the 600 numbers will be divisible by 3! which also means, unit's digit = 3 and 6 are also the easiest :P what remains is just 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for 4 we consider last 2 digits ____x4 x= 1, ____14 will not be divisible by 4 x= 2, ____24 will be divisible by 4 x= 3, ____34 will not be divisible by 4 x= 5, ____54 will not be divisible by 4 x= 6, ____64 will be divisible by 4 hence only 2/5 th of 120 numbers with unit digit as 4, will be divisible by 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2unit digit = 2 ............120 unit digit = 3 ............120 unit digit = 4 ............48 unit digit = 5 ............120 unit digit = 6 ............120 120*4+48 = 528 :)
