The number of six letter words (with or without meaning), formed using all the letters of the word 'VOWELS', so that all the consonants never come together, is ___________.

## Explanation

Total possible words = 6! = 720

When 4 consonants are together (V, W, L, S)
such cases = 3! ⋅ 4! = 144

All consonants should not be together

= Total $-$ All consonants together,

= 6! $-$ 3! 4! = 576

A number is called a palindrome if it reads the same backward as well as forward. For example 285582 is a six digit palindrome. The number of six digit palindromes, which are divisible by 55, is ____________.

## Explanation

 5 a b b a 5

For divisible by 55 it shall be divisible by 11 and 5 both, for divisibility by 5 unit digit shall be 0 or 5 but as the number is six digit palindrome unit digit is 5.

A number is divisible by 11 if the difference between sum of the digits in the odd places and the sum of the digits in the even places is a multiple of 11 or zero.

Sum of the digits in the even place = a + b + 5

Sum of the digits in the odd places = a + b + 5

Difference between the two sums = (a + b + 5 ) - (a + b + 5) = 0

0 is divisible by 11.

Hence, 5abba5 is divisible by 11.

So, required number = 10 $\times$ 10 = 100

The number of three-digit even numbers, formed by the digits 0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 7 if the repetition of digits is not allowed, is ______________.

## Explanation

(i) When '0' is at unit place Number of numbers = 20

(ii) When 4 or 6 are at unit place Number of numbers = 32

Total three digit even number = 20 + 32 = 52
