The ones digit, for all numbers divisible by 5, must be either <math>0</math> or <math>5</math>. However, from the restriction in the problem, it must be even, giving us exactly one choice (0) for this digit. For the middle two digits, we may choose any even integer from <math>[0, 8]</math>, meaning that we have <math>5</math> total options. For the first digit, we follow similar intuition but realize that it cannot be <math>0</math>, hence giving us 4 possibilities. Therefore, using the multiplication rule, we get <math>4\times 5 \times 5 \times 1 = \boxed{\textbf{(B) } 100}</math>. ~ciceronii

The following problem is from both the 2020 AMC 12A #4 and 2020 AMC 10A #6, so both problems redirect to this page.

Problem

How many $4$-digit positive integers (that is, integers between $1000$ and $9999$, inclusive) having only even digits are divisible by $5?$

$\textbf{(A) } 80 \qquad \textbf{(B) } 100 \qquad \textbf{(C) } 125 \qquad \textbf{(D) } 200 \qquad \textbf{(E) } 500$

Solution

The units digit, for all numbers divisible by 5, must be either $0$ or $5$. However, since all digits are even, the units digit must be $0$. The middle two digits can be 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8, but the thousands digit can only be 2, 4, 6, or 8 since it cannot be zero. There is one choice for the units digit, 5 choices for each of the middle 2 digits, and 4 choices for the thousands digit, so there is a total of $4\cdot5\cdot5\cdot1 = \boxed{\textbf{(B) } 100} \qquad$ numbers.
