Find the number of 4-digit numbers that can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 if digits cannot be repeated

#### Solution

There are 6 different digits and we have to form 4-digit numbers, i.e., n = 6, r = 4.

If the repetition of digits is not allowed, then the number of 4-digit numbers

6P4

= (6!)/(2!)

= (6 xx 5 xx 4 xx 3 xx 2!)/(2!)

= 360.
