    I'm so lost on a maths question.
    Ann picks a 4 digit number
    The first digit is not zero
    The 4 digit number is a multiple of 5
    How many different 4 digit numbers could she pick?

    I honestly have no idea how to go about this question

    Basically the question is asking how many multiples of 5 there are in the range 1000\leq x \leq 9999

    Do you understand why? Can you work it out from there?
