The number of even numbers of three digit which can be formed with digit 0,1,2,3,4 and 5 (no digit can be used more than once) is 1. 60 2. 92 3. 52 4. 48 Last edited by skipjack; July 1st, 2019 at 02:30 PM.

Second digit must be one of the five remaining digits. First digit must be one of the four remaining. Does that help? Thanks from topsquark

There are 2 ways to assign the first digit, and 2 ways to assign the last digit. Then having assigned these there are 4 ways to assign the 2nd digit. This is a total of 16 numbers. Assume the first digit is odd. There are 3 ways to assign the first digit, 3 ways to assign the last digit. Then there are 4 ways to assign the 2nd digit. This is a total of 36 36+16 = 52 Thanks from skeeter

There are similarly 20 that end in 2 and 20 that end in 4, making 60 in total. If, however, numbers that have a leading zero are excluded, the 8 numbers 012, 014, 024, 032, 034, 042, 052 and 054 are excluded. and so the total is 60 - 8 = 52.
