there aren't even 1000 three-digit
There are the digits 1 through 9 for the first digit. Then, we have 0 through 9 for the second digit - excluding the first digit. For the third digit, we have 0 through 9, excluding the two previous digits for a total of 9*9*8 =
648 three digit numbers with distinct digits.
EDIT- ... to be a little more specific, if your talking about a 3-digit password or unlock code its would be 1000. _-_
100122 or, if negative numbers are permitted, -998877
There are 900 three-digit numbers.
Using the digits of 1345678, there are 210 three digit numbers in which no digit is repeated.
27 three digit numbers from the digits 3, 5, 7 including repetitions.
There are the digits 1 through 9 for the first digit. Then, we have 0 through 9 for the second digit - excluding the first digit. For the third digit, we have 0 through 9 excluding the two previous digits
24 three digit numbers if repetition of digits is not allowed. 4P3 = 24.If repetition of digits is allowed then we have:For 3 repetitions, 4 three digit numbers.For 2 repetitions, 36 three digit numbers.So we have a total of 64 three digit numbers if repetition of digits is allowed.
For a 3 digit number, the left most or the most significant digit cannot be zero. So it can be 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9 which is 9 possibilities. The middle number can be 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 which is 10 possibilties but one of the digits has been chosen already as the first digit, so the possibilities are only 9. The right most number can be 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 which is 10 possibilities but two of the digits have been already used by the left most and the middle digits. That leaves only 8 possibilities. So the total number of three digit numbers that have three distinct digits is 9 x 9 x 8 = 81 x 8 = 648 possibilities
There are only two smaller 3-digit numbers and both of them have repeated digits.
It is possible to create a 3-digit number, without repeated digits so the probability is 1.
by making them half
