Can someone give me a hand with understanding the formula behind this better?

I can't seem to wrap my head around it?

Thanks

How many odd three-digit integers greater than 800 are there such that all their digits are different?

(C) 2008 GMAT Club - m25#20

40
56
72
81
104
If the number begins with 8, there are possibilities (5 possibilities for the last digit and 8 possibilities for the middle digit). If the number begins with 9, there are possibilities (4 possibilities for the last digit and 8 possibilities for the middle digit). In all, there are numbers that satisfy the constraints.

The correct answer is C.

Number of odd digit numbers starting with 8.
Hundreds place is filled with 8.
For a number to be odd, units place should be filled with either 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.
So there are 5 possibilities.
Tens place can be filled with either 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9 .
But we have to eliminate the digits that are used in units position.
So number of odd numbers with unique digits starting with 8 = 1*8*5 = 40 ways.

For numbers starting with 9, unit digit can be either or 1,3,5,7
So number of odd numbers with unique digits starting with 9 = 1*8*4 = 32 ways.

So total number of possible combinations = 40 + 32 = 72 ways
