Hey, guys I am new to this forum and I don't know whether this is the right way to ask a question or not. I am able to understand the sum up until the n(A U B) part; shouldn't it be the total number of numbers which contain both the digits 2 and 7? Thanks in advance.

No. Why would you think that?

$A$ is the set of all numbers using digits $37$ but NOT $2$ $B$ is the set of all numbers using digits $26$ but NOT $7$ so none of these numbers contain both $2$ AND $7$ thus the set of all numbers that don't contain both $2$ AND $7 = A \cup B$ can you follow the rest from there?
