Problem
How many -digit positive integers (that is, integers between and , inclusive) having only even digits are divisible by
Solution 1
The ones digit, for all numbers divisible by 5, must be either or . However, from the restriction in the problem, it must be even, giving us exactly one choice () for this digit. For the middle two digits, we may choose any even integer from , meaning that we have total options. For the first digit, we follow similar intuition but realize that it cannot be , hence giving us 4 possibilities. Therefore, using the multiplication rule, we get . ~ciceronii swrebby
Solution 2
The ones digit, for all the numbers that have to divisible be 5, must be a or a . Since the problem states that we can only use even digits, the last digit must be . From there, there are no other restrictions since the divisibility rule for 5 states that the last digit must be a or a . So there are even digit options for the first number then for the middle 2. So when we have to do . ~bobthefam
