Once you have chosen the first digit there are 3 choices for the second digit since you can't repeat the first. Thus there are $4 \times 3$ choices for the first two digits. Again, regardless of what two digits you have chosen there are 2 choices for the third digit and hence $4 \times 3 \times 2$ choices for the first three digits. Finally you have only one choice for the fourth digit so in total there are $4 \times 3 \times 2 \times 1 = 24$ possibilities. But you want to list tem. If the first two digits are 0 and 1 then the possibilities are
If the first two digits are 0 and 2 then the possibilities are
If the first two digits are 0 and 5 then the possibilities are
Thus there are six possibilities if the first digit is 0. What if the first digit is 1 or 2 or 5? Penny
