Solution



Given:
    • A palindrome is a number that reads the same forward and backward.

To find:
    • By using the numbers from 1-9, how many 5-digit palindromes can be created

Approach and Working:

Let the 5-digit number is abcba.

So, we need to find the in how many we can fill a, b, and c since the last two digits will take the same number.
    • a can take 9 numbers from 1-9.
    • b can take 10 numbers from 0-9.
    • c can take 10 numbers from 0-9.

Thus, way to form a 5-digit palindrome number= 9 * 10 * 10 *1 *1= 729.

Hence, the correct answer is option D.

Answer: D

I am getting 5 arrangements

ABCBA- Total arrangement A(10)*B(9)*C(8)=720 , A can be selected in 10,b in 9 and C in 8 ways
ABBBA- Total arrangement A(10)*B(9)=90
ABABA-Total arrangement A(10)*B(9)=90
AAAAA- Total arrangement A(10)=10
ABBBA-Total arrangement A(10)*B(9)=90


Total=720 +90+90+90+10=1000
Considering 0 also since its not telling 5 digit number . correct me if i am wrong

900?

- - - - - 5 places to filled. 1 blank can be filled in 9 ways.(1-9) last blank in 1 way as it has to be the same number as the 1 blanck. 2 blank can be filled in 10 ways (0-9). similarly 4 blank can be filled in 1 way only. lastly the 3 blank can also be filled in 10 ways
so 9*10*10=900

Number is of the form abcde
a can be filled in 9 ways (1-9)
b can be filled in 10 ways (0-9)
c can be filled in 10 ways (0-9)
d=b, so 1 way
e=a, so 1 way
total = 9*10*10*1*1 = 900
