The no. of ways in which the 4 places can be filled, by multiplication principle, is ways


For the Numbers divisible by 5,



the 4th place can be only filled by 1 way i.e., by 5, the 1st place can be filled by 3 ways (since repetition is not allowed), the second place by 2 ways and the third by 1 way.


total numbers divisible by
