**KSEEB SSLC Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 4** **Exercise 4.1**

**Question 1:**

How many 3-digit numbers can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 without repeating any digit?

**Solution :**

Digits are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

Now, the unit place can be filled in 6 ways using all the six digits.

As repetition of digits is not allowed, the tens place can be filled in 5 ways and the hundreds place can be filled in 4 ways.

Thus, total number of 3-digit numbers

= 6 × 5 × 4

= 120

**Question 2:**

How many 3 digit even numbers can be formed using the digits 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, if the digits are not repeated?

**Solution :**

Digits are 3, 5, 7, 8, and 9.

As the even number contains an even digit in the units place, 8 should be placed in the units place.

∴ The tens place can be filled in 4 ways by using 3, 5, 7, and 9; and the hundreds place can be filled in 3 ways.

Thus, the total number of ways = 4 × 3 = 12

Hence, 12 even numbers can be formed.

**Question 3:**

How many 3 letter code can be formed using the first 10 letters of English alphabet, if no letter can be repeated?

**Solution :**

The first 10 letters of the English alphabet are a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, and j.

Using these 10 letters, a 3 letter code is to be formed.

∴ 1^{st} place can be filled in 10 ways,

2^{nd} place can be filled in 9 ways and

3^{rd} place can be filled in 8 ways.

Thus, the total number of 3 letter code which can be formed

= 10 × 9 × 8

= 720

**Question 4:**

How many 5 digit telephone numbers can be formed using the digits 0 to 9, if each number starts with 65 and no digit appears more than once?

**Solution :**

There are 10 numbers in all from 0 to 9.

If each telephone number starts with 65, then eight digits are available to fill in the next three places.

Thus, the telephone numbers are in the form 6 5 _ _ _

∴ 1^{st} place can be filled in 8 ways,

2^{nd} place can be filled in 7 ways and

3^{rd} place can be filled in 6 ways.

Thus, the total number of 5-digit telephone numbers which can be formed

= 8 × 7 × 6

= 336

**Question 5:**

If a fair coin is tossed 3 times, find the number of outcomes.

**Solution :**

Each time a fair coin is tossed, number of outcomes = 2

i.e., Head (H) or Tail (T)

Thus, when a coin is tossed 3 times, the total number of outcomes

= 2 × 2 × 2

= 8

**Question 6:**

Given 5 flags of different colours, how many different signals can be generated if each signal requires the use of 2 flags one below the other?

**Solution :**

5 flags of different colours are to be used to form a signal with 2 flags.

The upper portion of the flag can be filled with five colours in 5 ways.

And, the lower portion of the flag can be filled with four colours in 4 ways.

Thus, the total number of signals which can be generated

= 5 × 4

= 20

**Question 1:**

How many words with or without dictionary meaning can be formed using all the letters of the word ‘Joule’ using each letter exactly once?

**Solution :**

Number of letters in the word ‘Joule’ = 5

Number of words which can be formed using all 5 letters (each letter exactly once)

= ^{5}P_{5}= 5!

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 120

Thus, 120 words with or without meaning can be formed using all the letters of the word ‘Joule’.

**Question 2:**

It is required to seat 5 men and 4 women in a row so that the women occupy the even places. How many such arrangements are possible?

**Solution :**

Number of men = 5

Number of women = 4

4 women can occupy the even places in ^{4}P_{4} ways.

The remaining 5 places can be filled by 5 men in ^{5}P_{5} ways.

∴ Total number of arrangements,

= ^{4}P_{4} × ^{5}P_{5}= 4! × 5!

= (4 × 3 × 2 × 1) × (5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1)

= 24 × 120

= 2880

Thus, 2880 arrangements are possible.

**Question 3:**

In how many ways can 6 women draw water from 6 wells, if no well remains unused?

**Solution :**

Number of women = 6

Number of wells = 6

Thus, number of women = number of wells

∴ Number of ways of drawing water from all the wells

= ^{6}P_{6}= 6!

= 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 720

Hence, water can be drawn from the 6 wells by 6 women in 720 ways.

**Question 4:**

Seven students are contesting the election for the Presidentship of the student’s union. In how many ways can their names be listed on the ballot papers?

**Solution :**

Number of students contesting for Presidentship = 7

Therefore, the number ways in which their names can be listed on the ballot papers

= ^{7}P_{7}= 7!

= 7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 5040

*Note: Answer given in the book is incorrect.

**Question 5:**

8 students are participating in a competition. In how many ways can the first three prizes be won?

**Solution :**

**Question 6:**

Find the total number of 2-digit numbers.

**Solution :**

The numbers required to form the 2-digit number are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

∴ Total numbers = 10

The units place can be filled using all the ten numerals in ^{10}P_{1} ways.

As ‘0’ cannot be filled in the tens place, the tens place can be filled in ^{9}P_{1} ways.

Total number of 2-digits numerals,

= ^{10}P_{1} × ^{9}P_{1}= 10 × 9

= 90

Hence, the total number of 2-digit numbers are 90.

**Question 7:**

There are 5 stickers, 3 of them red and the two of them green. It is desired to make a design by arranging them in a row. How many such designs are possible?

**Solution :**

Total number of stickers = 5

Number of ways of arranging 5 stickers

= ^{5}P_{5}= 5!

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 120 ways

Thus, 120 designs are possible.

**Question 8:**

How many 4-digit numbers can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9 (repetitions not allowed)?

- How many of these are less than 6000?
- How many of these are even?
- How many of these end with 7?

**Solution :**

Number of digits = 6

Therefore, the number of ways 4-digit numbers can be formed,

= ^{6}P_{4}= 6! /(6-4)!

= 6 × 5 × 4 × 3

= 360

Hence, 360 numbers can be formed.

a. For a number less than 6000,

We can fill the thousands place with 1 or 2 or 3 in^{ 3}P_{1} ways and the remaining 3 places can be filled in ^{5}P_{3} ways.

Therefore, numbers less than 6000

= ^{3}P_{1} × ^{5}P_{3} = 3 × 5 × 4 × 3

= 180

b. For a number to be even, the units place should contain 2 or 8.

∴ The units place can be filled in ^{2}P_{1} ways.

The remaining three places can be filled in ^{5}P_{3} ways.

Therefore, the total number of even numbers

= ^{5}P_{3} × ^{2}P_{1} = 5 × 4 × 3 × 2

= 120

c. If a number is ending with 7, the units place should contain 7.

∴ The units place can be filled in ^{1}P_{1} = 1 way

The remaining 3 places can be filled in ^{5}P_{3} ways.

Therefore, total numbers ending with 7,

= ^{5}P_{3 }× 1

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 1

= 60

**Question 9:**

There are 15 buses running between two towns. In how many ways can a man go to one town and return by a different bus?

**Solution :**

Number of buses = 15

Therefore, the number of ways by which a man can go to one town and return by a different bus,

= ^{15}P_{2}= 15 × 14

= 210
