## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 11th Maths Solutions Chapter 4 Combinatorics and Mathematical Induction Ex 4.5

Question 1.
The sum of the digits at the 10th place of all numbers formed with the help of 2, 4, 5, 7 taken all at a time is ……..
(a) 432
(b) 108
(c) 36
(d) 18
Solution:
(b) 108
Hint. Number of digits given = 2, 4, 5, 7
Number of 4 digit numbers formed = 4! =24
So each digit occur $$\frac{24}{4}$$ = 6 times
Sum of the digits = 2 + 4 + 5 + 7 = 18
So sum of the digits in each place = 18 × 6 = 108

Question 2.
In an examination there are three multiple choice questions and each question has 5 choices. Number of ways in which a student can fail to get all answer correct is ……..
(a) 125
(b) 124
(c) 64
(d) 63
Solution:
(b) 124
Hint. Each question has 5 options in which 1 is correct
So the number of ways of getting correct answer for all the three questions is 53 = 125
So the number of ways in which a student can fail to get all answer correct is < 125 (i.e.) 125 – 1 = 124 Question 3.

1 + 1! + 2! + 3! + … + n!
Now 1 + 1 (1!) = 2 = (1 + 1)!
1 + 1 (1!) + 2(2!) = 1 + 1 + 4 = 6 = 3!
1 + 1(1!) + 2(2!)+ 3(3!) = 1 + 1 + 4 + 18 = 24 = 4!
1 + 1(1!) + 2(2!) + 3(3!) ….+ n(n!) = (n + 1) ! – 1
= n + 1Pn + 1 – 1 = Pn + 1 – 1
