25%

The four digist are the factors of 60..so they could be (5322) or (1652) or (1453).
The numbers in each case that are greater than 5000 are 3 of 12, 4 of 24 and 4 of 24...so total 15 of 60 or 25%

10/21

Permutations of 4351 2651 , 2353 = 3 * 4!
Total possible combinations = 9P4 (we have to ignore 0)

3*4!/9P4 * 100 = 10/21

Hey lanuk,

it must be 3 of 12, 6 of 24 and 6 of 24.........so total 15 out of 60 ie 25%.

I too got the same answer. So let's wait for the OA
