    since there is no repetition you can treat it as how many arrangements of 4 different items are possible...

    it is the same as "how many ways can the letters of the word WINO be rearranged"

    a) What do you know about numbers that are divisble by 5?

    b) If it's greater than 3000, what are the number of choices for the 1st digit, then the second, third, fourth.

    comlpete the sentance. 'To be divisible by 5 a number must end in a ____'

    If you can pin down one of the numbers, you then can work out how many combinations there are that satisfty this condition.....

    for b) write down the lowest number you can which is higher than 3000. see what you notice about this condition.
