Problem
How many -digit positive integers (that is, integers between and , inclusive) having only even digits are divisible by
Solution
The units digit, for all numbers divisible by 5, must be either or . However, since all digits are even, the units digit must be . The middle two digits can be 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8, giving 5 choices for each. The first (thousands) digit can be 2, 4, 6, or 8, giving 4 choices. Therefore, using the multiplication rule, we get possible 4-digit integers.
