SOLUTION

Of the three-digit integers greater than 700, how many have two digits that are equal to each other and the remaining digit different from the other two?

(A) 90
(B) 82
(C) 80
(D) 45
(E) 36

Three digit number can have only following 3 patterns:
A. all digits are distinct;
B. two digits are alike and third is different;
C. all three digits are alike.

We need to calculate B. B=Total - A - C

Total numbers from 700 to 999 = 299 (3-digit numbers greater than 700);
A. all digits are distinct = 3*9*8=216 (first digit can have only three values 7, 8, or 9);
C. all three are alike = 3 (777, 888, 999).

So, 299-216-3=80.

Answer: C.

Question: 11

Difficulty: 650



The first digit can be 7, 8 or 9, so three possibilities.
If the first digit is repeated, we have 2 * 9 possibilities, because the numbers can be of the form aab or aba, where b\neq a.
If the first digit is not repeated, the number is of the form abb, for which there are 9 possibilities.
This gives a total of 27 choices for a given first digit.
Altogether, we will have 3 * 27 = 81 choices from which we have to eliminate one choice, 700 (because the numbers should be greater than 700).
We are finally left with 80 choices.

Answer: C

Hi,

To satify the given condition,
required no. of cases = total numbers - numbers with all digits different - numbers when all three digits are same,
number greater than 700;
total numbers = 1*10*10 = 100
numbers with all digits different = 1*9*8 = 72
numbers when all three digits are same (777) = 1
req. = 100- 72 - 1 = 27
considering the numbers between 700 & 999 = 27*3=81
Answer is 80 ('cause 700 can't be included)

Answer (C).

Regards,

There are 2 numbers that have the same two digits for each of the 10's (700-709, 710-719, 720-729, etc.), with the exception for where the tens digit is the same as the hundreds (770-779), in this scenario there are 9 digits that have the same two digits.

So for 700-799 inclusive there are (9 * 2) + 9 - 1 = 26 numbers that the same two digits. Subtract one cause 700 shouldn't be included.
For 800 - 999 the calculation simply becomes 27 * 2 = 54

54 + 26 =

Total Number of 3 digit number greter than 700 = 299
In 700 series - The total number of number with distinct digit = 9*8
So from 700 till 999 we will have - 3*9*8 = 216
So total number of numbers with duplicate digit = 299-216 = 83
Need to Subtract 777,888 & 999 so answer is 80.

999-700=299 (total numbers)

299-3 =296 (3 means 777/888/999)

3*8*9=216 (doing so, we found total numbers,which have different digits)
296-216=80

ans is C

For 3 digit numbers greater than 700, the first digit has to be 7, 8, or 9. The last two digits can be anything except 00.

There can be three possible cases for such numbers:

Case 1- first two digits same. The last digit has to be different from the first two. As the first digit is constrained to be 7,8,or 9, total number of such numbers = 3*9 = 27

Case 2 - first and third digits same. By the same logic as above, total number of such numbers = 27

Case 3 - second and third digits same. Total number of such numbers = (3*9)-1 = 26 (we need to subtract one to remove the 00 case).

Therefore total = 27 + 27 + 26 = 80 numbers (option C)

We have assumed here that numbers where all three digits are the same are not allowed.

From 701 to 799 we will have: 711, 722.... 799( excluding 777 ) = 8;
From 770 to 779 we have 9 numbers ( excluding 777 ).
We will also have numbers such as 707, 717, 727.... 797, total 9 numbers ( excluding 777 )
Similarly from 800 to 899 we will have 9 numbers ( we will exclude 888 )
From 880 to 899 we will once again have 9 numbers
We will also have numbers such as 808, 818.... 898, total 9 numbers ( excluding 888 )
Similarly for numbers greater than equal to 900 and till 999 we will have 27 such numbers.
Total = 26(>700) + 27(>=800) + 27(>=900) = 80 such numbers.

Please give a kudo if you like my explanation.

A. all digits are distinct = 3*9*8=216 (first digit can have only three values 7, 8, or 9);

Since given three-digit integers must be greater than 700, then the first digit can take three values: 7, 8, or 9. The second digit can take 9 values: 10 digits minus one digit we've already used for the first digit. Similarly, the third digit can take 8 values: 10 digits minus two digits we've already used for the first and second digits.

Hope it's clear.

Of the three-digit integers greater than 700, how many have two digits that are equal to each other and the remaining digit different from the other two?

(A) 90
(B) 82
(C) 80
(D) 45
(E) 36


Let the three digit number be represented as X Y Z.

There are 3 cases:

Case I. [ X=Y ] & Z is not equal to X & Y : XXZ or YYZ
X can be either 7, 8 or 9, so digit at X can be chosen in 3 ways
After X is chosen, Y can be chosen in 1 way
After X & Y are chosen, Z can be chosen in 9 ways
Thus, possible No of digits = (3 ways) * (1 way) * (9 ways) = 27 ....(1)
[example numbers: 774,779,882,993 etc]

Case II. [ X=Z ] & Y is not equal to X & Z: XYX or ZYZ
X can be either 7, 8 or 9, so digit at X can be chosen in 3 ways
After X is chosen, Z can be chosen in 1 way
After X & Z are chosen, Z can be chosen in 9 ways
Thus, possible No of digits = (3 ways) * (9 ways) * (1 way) = 27 ....(2)
[example numbers: 747,797,828,939 etc]

Case III. [ Y =Z ]& X is not equal to Y & Z :XYY or XZZ
X can be either 7, 8 or 9, so digit at X can be chosen in 3 ways
After X is chosen, Y can be chosen in 9 ways
After Y is chosen, Z can have 1 way
Thus, possible No of digits = (3 ways) * (1 way) * (9 ways) = 27 ....(3)
[example numbers: 744,799,822,933 etc]

Therefore, total numbers of possible digits [sum of Case (1), (2) & (3) above] = 27 + 27 + 27 - 1 = 80
One digit is subtracted from total number of possible digits to eliminate one possibility of XYZ = 700 to satisfy the condition that digit > 700.

Of the three-digit integers greater than 700, how many have two digits that are equal to each other and the remaining digit different from the other two?

(A) 90
(B) 82
(C) 80
(D) 45
(E) 36


Consider numbers from 701 to 799

Case 1: Numbers such as 707, 717..... 797 (Except 777)

1*9*1 = 9 ---> (1)

Case 2: Numbers such as 770, 771..... 779 (Except 777)

1*1*9 = 9 ---> (2)

Case 3: Numbers such as 711, 722...... 799 (Except 777)

1*8*1 = 8 ---> (3) [NOTE: Did not consider 0 & 7 for the unit's and ten's digit]

Adding (1), (2) & (3)

9 + 9 + 8 = 26

This can be done for 801 to 899 and 901 to 999.

So, we get 26 * 3 = 78

We also need to consider 800 and 900 (But NOT 700)

So, 78 + 2 = 80


Can an expert evaluate the method. I understand that this method is long and could take time.
But I want to be sure that I considered the cases correctly (In case, it comes to this during the exam!).

Thanks in advance.
