Questions & Answers
Q: How many ways can the hundreds place be filled if the threedigit number has to be greater than 200?
The hundreds place can be filled with any digit greater than two, so there are four possible options: 2, 3, 4, or 5.
Q: How many ways can the tenths place be filled after using one digit in the hundreds place?
After using one digit in the hundreds place, there are four digits remaining, so the tenths place can be filled in four ways.
Q: How many ways can the unit's digit be filled after using two digits in the hundreds and tenths place?
With two digits used, there are three digits left, so the unit's digit can be filled in three ways.
Q: Does the answer change when repetition is allowed?
When repetition is allowed, the answer changes. In this case, there are 4 ways to fill the hundreds place, 5 ways to fill the tenths place, and 5 ways to fill the unit's place, resulting in a total of 100 threedigit numbers.
