- $nP_r=\large\frac{n!}{(n-r)!}$

Out of 5 digits 4 digit numbers are to be formed

Such numbers are $5P_4$

$5P_4=\large\frac{5!}{(5-4)!}$

$\;\;\;\;\;\;\;=\large\frac{5!}{1!}$

$\;\;\;\;\;\;\;=5\times 4\times 3\times 2$

$\;\;\;\;\;\;\;=120$

When 2 is at unit's place ,then remaining three places are filled in $4P_3$ ways

$4P_3=\large\frac{4!}{(4-3)!}$
