E 10,300


There is one number in hundred with 2 in th tens digit and 1 in the units digit: 21, 121, 221, 321, ...

The difference between 324,700 and 458,600 is 458,600-324,700=133,900 - one number per each hundred gives 133,900/100=1,339 numbers.

Answer: A.

Hope it's clear.

Using the probability method

N = 458,600 – 324,700 = 133,900
P = 1/10*1/10 = 1/100.

P*N = 1/100*133,900 = 1,339

And the answer is (A)

Find the number of integers between the two.

458600-324700 = 133900. Now we need to figure out how many instances there will be a 2 in the tens and a 1 in the units. The easiest way to do this is to see that per 100 integers (0-100) only 21 suffices the conditions. Thus, per 100 integers there is only 1 instance.

133900/100 = 1339.

The first few integers that have this property are: 324,721, 324,821, 324,921, …. As we can see, this is an arithmetic sequence with common difference of 100. Since the last integer that has this property is 458,521, the number of integers that have this property is:

(458,521 - 324,721)/100 + 1 = 133,800/100 + 1 = 1,338 + 1 = 1,339

Answer: A
