How many 4-digit positive integers have exactly one even digit?

 Jun 18, 2020

Hello! I am new to this website and I am not the best at math, but I like helping people so I will try to help.  Please tell me if I get it wrong, and don't be mad. Thanks!


My thinking is that there are exactly five possible even digits, and we can first take a look at the possible 4-digit numbers where the first digit is even.  There are 4 choices for the first one because it can't be 0, and 10 for each one following.  This gives 4*10*10*10=4000.  We can do the same for when the even digit is in the hundereds, tens, and ones place, then add them all up: 4000+5000+5000+5000=19000.  So the answer is 19000.  Again, I might not be correct. :)

There can only be one even digit...so the other three are odd. Let O represent an odd digit and E an even digit.


The numbers can be like this:






In each number, there are 5 possible odd digits(1, 3, 5, 7, 9) and 5 possible even digits(0, 2, 4, 6, 8). In the first case, EOOO, the first digit can't be 0 so there are 4*5*5*5=500 ways. 

The other three cases are the same: each one has 5^4=625 ways.


So the total number of integers with only one even digit is 624+500=1125.


Let me know if this is correct.

OUPUT = 2,375  such numbers.
