Forming 2-Digit Numbers

We will learn forming 2-digit numbers.

How many 2-digit numbers can be formed using the digits 2 and 7?

There are two ways to make 2-digit numbers using the given digits.

I. By repeating the digits - 22 and 77

II. Without repeating the digits - 27 and 72

Thus, there are four 2-digit numbers that can be made using the digits 2 and 7.

Forming Greatest 2-Digit Number:

For Example:

1. Build the greatest 2-digit number possible using the digits 5 and 1.

Step 1: Start with the greatest digit in the greatest place. Since, 5 > 1, put 5 in the tens place.

Step 2: Now put the next greatest digit in the ones place.

If repetition is allowed, the greatest 2-digit number is 55.

If repetition is not allowed, the greatest 2-digit number is 51.

Since 55 > 51, the greatest 2-digit number possible using the given digits is 55.

 

2. Build the greatest 2-digit number possible using the digits 8 and 4.

Step 1: Start with the greatest digit in the greatest place. Since, 8 > 4, put 8 in the tens place.

Step 2: Now put the next greatest digit in the ones place.

If repetition is allowed, the greatest 2-digit number is 88.

If repetition is not allowed, the greatest 2-digit number is 84.

Since 88 > 84, the greatest 2-digit number possible using the given digits is 88.


Forming smallest 2-digit number

For Example:

1. Build the smallest 2-digit number possible using the digits 2 and 1.

Step 1: Start with the smallest digit in the greatest place. Since, 1 < 2, put 1 in the tens place.

Step 2: If repetition is allowed, the smallest 2-digit number is 11.

If repetition is not allowed, the smallest 2-digit number is 12.

Since 11 < 12, the smallest 2-digit number possible using the given digits is 11.

 

2. Build the smallest 2-digit number possible using the digits 7 and 3.

Step 1: Start with the smallest digit in the greatest place. Since, 3 < 7, put 3 in the tens place.

Step 2: If repetition is allowed, the smallest 2-digit number is 33.

If repetition is not allowed, the smallest 2-digit number is 37.

Since 33 < 37, the smallest 2-digit number possible using the given digits is 33.


3. Build the smallest 2-digit number possible using the digits 6 and 0, without repeating any of the digits.

0 < 6, but starting with zero makes 06, which is not a 2-digit number.

Hence, we begin with the next smallest digit which is 6.

Now put the next smallest digit which is 0 in the ones place. Thus, 60 is the smallest 2-digit number formed using the given digits.


Questions on Forming 2-Digit Numbers:

I. Write the greatest and smallest 2-digit numbers formed by the following digits, given that the repetition of digits is allowed.

(i) 1, 9             __________; __________

(ii) 0, 7            __________; __________


II. Build the numbers using the given digits in each of the following, without repeating any of the digits.

(i) The greatest 2-digit number using the digits 5 and 7

(ii) The smallest 2-digit number using the digits 0 and 8
