You can but you would have to take multiple cases and that would be really cumbersome. The left most digit can be either a 3 or a 4 but then next digit depends on what the leftmost digit is. If left most digit is 3, next digit can be anything from 2 to 9. If the leftmost digit is 4, the next digit can be from 0 to 5. Similarly other digits too. So preferably, focus on the approach given by Bunuel. _________________

We have to count how many hundreds are from 324,700 to 458,600. We substract 458,600 - 324,700 = 133,900 We divide, 133,900/100 = 1,339 _________________

458,600-324,700=133,900-1=133,899.
So there are 133,899 integers between the two numbers. Now how many hundreds of numbers are there? There are 1338+1 (to account for the number 133,821).
m clear with the statement that there are 133,899 integers between the two numbers. but how to calculate hundreds of numbers in them.....
There are 1338+1 (to account for the number 133,821-------cud not understand this particular step....
If anyone can explain me this step in little detail then plz explain coz i dont hv any idea

When we have to find the numbers between A and B(where both A and B are included) = (B-A)/1 +1.
When we have to find the numbers between A and B(where both A and B are excluded) = (B-A)/1 -1.
When we have to find the numbers between A and B(where either A or B is included) = (B-A)/1 .
For a number to keep having a 2 in the tens place and 1 in the units place, we have to keep adding 100 to that number. Thus, starting from 324,721, keep adding 100 to get the same units and digits place. Now to find the hundreds, all we have to do is find the number of hundreds between 458,521 and 324,721, where both are included : (458521-324721)/100+1 = 1338+1 = 1339. _________________

what a wonderful explaination!!!
even after reading all the above solutions , things dint go in my mind .......
but ur explaination ( specially the first three lines) made my basic concepts vivid.

There is one number in hundred with 1 in the tens digit and 3 in the units digit: 13, 113, 213, 313, ...
The difference between 324,700 and 458,600 is 458,600-324,700=133,900 - one number per each hundred gives 133,900/100=1,339 numbers.
Answer: E.
Hi Why you divided by 100..Please explain..I read all below comments but still can not understand the concept.
Thanks in advance
In each hundred there is only one number with 1 in the tens digit and 3 in the units digit. How many hundreds are in 133,900? 133,900/100=1,339. One number per hundred gives total of 1,339*1 numbers. _________________

I guess possibility of 1 in the tens is 1/10 and possibility of 23 in the unit digit is 1/10, so number of the way is 458,600-324,700=133,900/100 = 1,339

Dear Bunuel,Karishma/others
I might be overthinking here.
Getting confused. I reached till the step of calculating hundreds i.e 458600-324700 = 133900; Next I got confused and was trying to find hunders using Last-First +1 --> 133901
How are the above two concepts different. If we take 1-200 range to calculate 100's we can do 200-1 +1 --> total integers/100
Kindly help in clarifying.
