Thanks, Ali we need to find odd numbers without digit 5 from 100 to 1000 (i.e same as odd numbers without digit 5 from 100 to 999) let say number= XYZ Z= units digit Y= tenths digit X= Hundredth's digit For any 3 digit number to be odd, Unit digit must be odd So Z can be filled with 1,3,7,9 (we are exlcuding digit 5) = 4 ways. Y can be filled with 0,1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 (we are ecluding digit 5) = 9 ways X can be filled with 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 (we are exlcuding digits 0 and 5 .. ) = 8 ways No of ways= 4*9*8= 288

180 196 286 288 324 lets see..in all there are 450 odd numbers! of which 105, 115, 125, 135..10 such number per 100 numbrs 10+10(from 15X) 201=19 such numbers cause i already counted 155 twice.. 19*8=152 such numbers..plus 100 from 5XX..so total to be excluded 152+100450=198.. I would guess the number is 196..

Should be 288. We have to find the total number of 3digit odd numbers not having 5 as a digit. Units digits will be among 1,3,7,9 Tenth digits will be among 0,1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 Hundredth digits will be among 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 So total numbers = 4*9*8 =288

Please share more of such examples. Thanks. My approach was cumbersome and time consuming:

A. 180 B. 196 C. 286 D. 288 E. 324
M0312 Examine what digits these set members can contain: First digit (hundreds): 8 choices (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9  cannot be 0 or 5) Second digit (tens): 9 choices (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9  cannot be 5) Last digit (units): 4 choices (1, 3, 7, 9  cannot be 0, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8) The answer is 8∗9∗4=32∗9=288. Answer: D.

consider all three digit number between 1001000 XYZ Z can take only 4 values : 1,3,7 and 9 (It cannot take 5) y can take 9 values : 0,1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 (It cannot take 5) X can take 8 values : 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 (IT cannot take 0 and 5) Hence the answer : 4*9*8= 288
