```										Dear Darshita
If a number is divisible by 3, the sum of its  digits is divisible by 3. We need to choose five digits from  {0,1,2,3,4,5} which add to a multiple of 3. We could choose:   {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}   or   {0, 1, 2, 4, 5}   If we use the digits {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, we have 5 choices for the first  digit, 4 for the second, etc- 5! = 120 numbers we can make in total.   If we use the digits {0, 1, 2, 4, 5}, we only have 4 choices for the  first digit (because it cannot be zero), 4 choices for the second digit,  3 for the third, etc- 4*4! = 96 numbers we can make in total.   120+96 = 216.

All the best.
