How many five digit numbers can be formed using the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 which are divisible by 3, without repeating the digits?

(1) 15 (2) 96 (3) 216 (4) 120

is it 216. Actually I am weak in Permu & Comb. So not sure but I did this way. of the digits 0,1,2,3,4,5 once we can use without 0 and second time without 3. So without 0 we get 120 numbers like 5*4*3*2*1=120 and without 3 we get 96 numbers like 4*4*3*2*1=96 . so 120+96=216 but not sure as my main weaknesses are Permu and comb, verbal and co-ordinate geometry.

Can any1 please explain how come the answer is 216??

from set = {0,1,2,3,4,5}

5 digit number divisible by 3 can be formed using digits {1,2,3,4,5}, therefore 5! = 120
5 digit number divisible by 3 can be formed using digits {0,1,2,4,5}, therefore 5! = 120
