(b) 720

(c) 3600

(d) None of these

**Answer Key with explanation**

1) (a) 504

^{9}P_{3} = 9!/6!

Because, ^{n}P_{r}

= (9 ×8 ×7 ×6!)/6!

= 9 × 8 × 7 = 504

2) (b) 8

^{n}P_{5 }= 20 ^{n}P_{3}

(n – 3)(n – 4) = 20

n = 8 (n = -1 is inadmissible)

3) (a) 216

4 | 4 | 3 | 2 |

= 4 × 4 × 3 × 2 = 96

Thousands place cannot assume 3 since required numbers are greater than 5000.

5 |
4 |
3 |
2 |
1 |

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120

Total required numbers = 96 + 120 = 216.

4) (b) 1680

8 | 7 | 6 | 5 |

= 8 × 7 × 6 × 5 = 1680

3 and 5 have been already used, so we have 8 digits for thousands place, then 7 digits for hundreds place, 6 digits for tens digit and remaining 5 digits for unit place.

5) (c) 120

A number is divisible by 5 only if its unit digit is either 5 or 0. So we fix 5 as unit digit and then we fill up the remaining places.

5 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 1 |

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120

Hence, required number is 120.

6) (a) 111

**Case 1**

3 | 3 | 1 |

= 3 × 3 × 1 = 9

When 2 is fixed at unit place, we have 3, 4 and 5 i.e., 3 digits for hundreds place and remaining 3 digits (out of 5) for the tens place.

2 | 3 | 1 |

= 2 × 3 × 1 = 6

When 4 is fixed at unit place, we have 3 and 5 i.e., only two digits for hundreds place and remaining 3 digits for tens place.

**Case 2**

4 | 3 | 2 | 2 |

= 48

**Case 3**

4 | 3 | 2 | 1 | 2 |

= 48

5 digit numbers = 48

Thus there are total 15 + 48 + 48 = 111 even numbers greater than 300.

7) (a) 5040

There are 7 letters in the word RAINBOW and each letter is used only once. So all the 7 letters can be arranged in 7! Ways.

7! = 7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 5040

8) (a) 720

If we fix R as initial letter, then we have to arrange only 6 remaining letters.

Hence required number of permutations = 6!

= 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 720

9) (a) 120

If we fix R and W as the first and last letters then we have to arrange only 5 remaining letters which can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways.

10) (c) 3600

Explanation:

Number of permutations when I and O are together

= 2! × 6! = 1440

Total number of permutations = 7! = 5040

Therefore, number of permutations when I and O are not together

= 5040 – 1440 = 3600
