Dear Raj
 

To calculate the 3 digit numbers with exactly one of its digit as 5, we need to use permutation and combination.

Consider a 3 digit number ‘ABC’

Case 1) A=5, thus B and C can be any digits but 5… so total of 9 digits (0,1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9) can replace B and C

Therefore total combinations = 1*9*9 = 81

Case 2) B=5, thus C be any digit but 5 while A can be any digit but 0 & 5. A cannot be 0 as it will violate the rule of being a 3 digit number.

Thus total combinations = 8*1*9 = 72

Case 3) C=5, on similar lines as case 2 thus total combinations = 8*9*1 = 72

Therefore total combinations = 81 + 72 + 72 = 225

Thus, there are 225 3 digit numbers who have exactly one of its digit as 5
