How many -digit positive integers (that is, integers between and , inclusive) having only even digits are divisible by
Solution
The ones digit, for all numbers divisible by 5, must be either or . However, from the restriction in the problem, it must be even, giving us exactly one choice () for this digit. For the middle two digits, we may choose any even integer from , meaning that we have total options. For the first digit, we follow similar intuition but realize that it cannot be , hence giving us 4 possibilities. Therefore, using the multiplication rule, we get . ~ciceronii
