never mind i think i got it.

since we can only use 2,3,4, and 5. units digit must be 5

so for possible combinations of xy5

it would be 235, 325, 245, 425, 345, 435

answer 6

= 3c2 x 2 = 6

can you explain your method. i solved it differently

XYZ, where Z must be 5. therefore 1 variation of digit in Z.
Y can be any of the 3 possible choices.
X can be any of the 2 possible choices.

2+3+1= 6

Available: 2, 3, 4, 5

You need to make 3 digit numbers which are multiples of 5.
___ ___ ___

For the number to be a multiple of 5, it must end with either 0 or 5. We only have 5 available so the number must end with 5.

___ ___ 5

Now you select 2 numbers out of the leftover 3 numbers (2, 3 and 4) in 3C2 ways and arrange them in the 2 places in 2! ways which gives you 3C2*2! = 6

or you can say that you can select a number for the hundreds place in 3 ways and select a number for the tens place in 2 ways (since numbers cannot be repeated). So you can make the number in 3*2 = 6 ways
