Finding out the number of 5 digit numbers having digits in descending order:-

1)digits staring with 9--the next 4 digits can accommodate digits from 0 to 8 only.these can be selected in 9C4 ways and arranged in descending order and there is only one way of arranging the selected 4 numbers in descending order.

Eg:one of the sets formed is (8,0,3,5)

its descending order is 8530.the number is 98530.i.e.,only one way.

so number of 5 digit numbers formed are 9C4.

2)digits starting with 8--next 4 digits can have numbers from 0 to 7 only.these can be selected in 8C4 ways.

similarly digits starting with 7,6,5,4 gives 7C4+6C4+5C4+4C4.



Finding out number of 5 digit numbers having digits in ascending order:-

These cant start with 0

1)so,numbers starting with 1--next 4 digits can have digits from 2 to 9 can be selected in 8c4 ways.

2)numbers starting with 2--7C4.

Similarly we can find numbers with 3,4,5
