4.How many numbers between 10,000 and 40,000 which **do not** contain the digits 7 and 4 , can be divided by 15 ?

5.How many numbers between 10,000 and 100,000 **do not** have
reapeting digits and the the digits 3, 4 and 5 appear in ascending order(*but not necessarily adjacent*) ?

for Q1. Numbers without 7 AND 4 we can have are 3x8x8x8x8=12 288 , numbers divisible by 15 should end with 5 OR 0, and the sum of numbers is divisible by 3, 10005,10010, 10015,10020,10025,10030,10035 so every third number is divisible by 15 or we have 12 288/3=4096...IMO

Since your number is between 10000 and 40000 first number we can select in 3 ways (1,2,3) the rest in 8 ways each ( without 7 and 4) which is ultimately 3x8x8x8x8

Q1.
Total No's are 3*8*8*8*2. For divisibility by 15, the Nos are
10,005, 10020, 10035 ... etc; so these are 15 appart. In this seris there will be no numbers with 7 or 4 as the digits. so we have 30,000/15 = 2,000 numbers.

It seesm that the first part about digits is redundant information. Is this solution correct.

345XX as a pair XX can occupy 4 places in 3 of them we have 42 possibilities when is at the beginning only 36 possibilities( without 0)3x42=126+36=162 different numbers, when separate 12 ways of ordering the two numbers but in 6 of them it can not be 0 or 6x36+6x42=216+252=468, total 162+468=630 numbers..
