Formation of Numbers
with the Given Digits
In formation of numbers with the given digits we may say that a number
is an arranged group of digits. Numbers may be formed with or without
the repetition of digits. Let us observe some of the formation of
numbers without the repetition of digits.
Some 2digit numbers formed by given digits are shown below:
(i) with digits 2 and 3 the formed numbers are 23, 32
(ii) with digits 4 and 7 we may form the numbers 47, 74
(iii) with digits 5 and 9 we may form the numbers 59, 95
But with the digit 0 and the digit 6, only the number 60 is formed. The number 06 is not a twodigit number.
Accordingly, 3digit numbers are also formed.
Some numbers formed by 3 digits are given below:
(a) The numbers by 2, 3, and 4 are:
234, 243, 324, 342, 423, 432 (6 numbers each of 3 digits)
(b) The numbers by 4, 6 and 9 are:
469, 496, 649, 694, 946, 964 (6 numbers each of 3 digits)
(c) The numbers by 3, 7 and 8 are:
378, 387, 738, 783, 837, 873 (6 numbers each of 3 digits)
(d) The numbers by 0, 1 and 5 are
105, 150, 501, 510 (only 4 numbers of 3 digits)
Some numbers formed by 4 digits are given below:
(a) The numbers formed by 1, 2, 3 and 4 are:
1234, 1243, 1324, 1342, 1423, 1432
2134, 2143, 2314, 2341, 2413, 2431
3124, 3142, 3421, 3412, 3214, 3241
4123, 4132, 4213, 4231, 4312, 4321
(b) Similarly, other 4digit numbers may be formed.
We observe that, when the numbers of digits are increased, more and more
numbers are formed. We are familiar with the formation of numbers with 2
or 3 digits. We should know the procedure of forming the greatest and
smallest numbers having definite digits.
Examples on Formation of Numbers with the Given Digits:
1. How many 3 digit numbers can be formed by using the
digits 0, 3 and 7 without repeating any digit.
Solution:
Placing 0 at one's place, we can have two natural numbers 730 and
370.
While placing 0 at tens place we can have two natural numbers 307
and 703.
Zero cannot be placed at hundreds place. Hence, the numbers are
370, 730, 307 and 703.
2. The greatest 6digit number formed by using the digits 9, 7, 0, 5 (where two of the four digits are allowed to repeat twice only) is
(a) 779950
(b) 999750
(c) 997750
(d) 997500
Answer: (c) 997750
3. Form the greatest 9digit number having six different digits is __________.
(a) 999998656
(b) 999999999
(c) 998877663
(d) 999987654
Answer: (d) 999987654
4. Without repeating any digit, write the smallest and largest possible 4digit numbers having 6 in tens place.
Answer:
Smallest possible 4digit numbers having 6 in tens place is 1062
Largest possible 4digit numbers having 6 in tens place is 9867

The terms used in division are dividend, divisor, quotient and remainder. Division is repeated subtraction. For example: 24 ÷ 6 How many times would you subtract 6 from 24 to reach 0?
The number that comes just before a number is called the predecessor. So, the predecessor of a given number is 1 less than the given number. Successor of a given number is 1 more than the given number. For example, 9,99,99,999 is predecessor of 10,00,00,000 or we can also

Rule I: We know that a number with more digits is always greater than the number with less number of digits. Rule II: When the two numbers have the same number of digits, we start comparing the digits from left most place until we come across unequal digits. To learn
In formation of numbers we will learn the numbers having different numbers of digits. We know that: (i) Greatest number of one digit = 9,
the greatest number is formed by arranging the given digits in descending order and the smallest number by arranging them in ascending order. The position of the digit at the extreme left of a number increases its place value. So the greatest digit should be placed at the
The place value of a digit in a number is the value it holds to be at the place in the number. We know about the place value and face value of a digit and we will learn about it in details. We know that the position of a digit in a number determines its corresponding value
We know that the number written as sum of the placevalues of its digits is called the expanded form of a number. In expanded form of a number, the number is shown according to the place values of its digits. This is shown here: In 2385, the place values of the digits are

Rounding off numbers are discussed here, where we need to round a number. (i) If we purchase anything and its cost is $12 and 23¢, the cost is rounded up to it’s nearest $ 12 and 23¢ is left. (ii) If we purchase another thing and its cost is $15.78. The cost is rounded up
The properties of multiples are discussed step by step according to its property. Every number is a multiple of 1. Every number is the multiple of itself. Zero (0) is a multiple of every number. Every multiple except zero is either equal to or greater than any of its factors
