Solution :-

Using the numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7, 3-digit numbers can be formed. The units place can be filled by any of the digits 2, 4 or 6. Hence, there are 3 ways. Since, it is given that, digits cannot be repeated, units place is already occupied, the hundreds and tens place can be occupied by remaining 5 digits. Thus, number of ways of filling hundreds and tens place 

\( ^5P_2=\dfrac{5!}{(5-2)!}=\dfrac{5!}{3!}\)

\( \dfrac{5\times 4\times 3!}{3!}\)

= 20
