The Number of five-digit telephone numbers having atleast [#permalink] New post 30 Dec 2007, 05:41
The Number of five-digit telephone numbers having atleast one digit repeated is ???

a) 90000 b) 100000 c) 30240 d) 69760 e) 69000

Let me explain how did I solve this problem

Total 5 digit numbers ( repetitions included) = 9*10^4 = 90000( 100000-10000)

Total no of 5 digit numbers without any repitition= 10p5-9p4= 27216( 10p5 is the total 5 digit numbers - 9p4( 5 digit numbers which have 0 in the begining))

===> Number of five-digit telephone numbers having atleast one digit repeated is == 90000 - 27216 .which is none of the answers given above.

AM I MISSING ANYTHING HERE????

Pleaselet me know . .....

thanks for your help

Total number: N=10^5 (there are no restriction of 0xxxx numbers)
Total number without repeated digits: N1=10*9*8*7*6
Total number with repeated digits: N2=N-N1=10^5-10*9*8*7*6=69760
