**Q6. In how many ways can 5 prizes be distributed to 8 students if each student can get any number of prizes?**

40

5⁸

8⁵

120

140

Solution:

**Q7. There are four hotels in a town. If three men check into the hotels in a day then what is the probability that all of them do not check into the same hotel?**

15/16

63/64

3/64

1/16

1/4

Solution:

The total number of ways in which they can check in = 4 × 4 × 4 = 64 ways.

Out of this there will be 4 ways in which all of them will check into the same hotel.

Number of ways all of them do not check into the same hotel = 64 – 4 = 60 ways

Required probability = 60/64 = 15/16

Out of this there will be 4 ways in which all of them will check into the same hotel.

Number of ways all of them do not check into the same hotel = 64 – 4 = 60 ways

Required probability = 60/64 = 15/16

**Q8. How many 4 digits number can be formed using 2, 3, 5, 7, 6 and 9 if the number should be divisible by ‘4’ and repetition is not allowed?**

120

96

160

64

296

Solution:

The number which should be divisible by 4 will end with 32, 52, 72, 92, 36, 56, 76 and 96 (Total 8 ways)

Starting two numbers can be chosen in 4 × 3 = 12 ways

Total no. of ways = 12 × 8 = 96 ways

Starting two numbers can be chosen in 4 × 3 = 12 ways

Total no. of ways = 12 × 8 = 96 ways
