Hint: Use the fact that ${}^{n}{{P}_{r}}=\dfrac{n!}{\left( n-r \right)!}$ and $0\le r\le n$. Calculate the values of ${}^{9}{{P}_{5}}$ and ${}^{9}{{P}_{4}}$ ,hence determine the value of LHS. Now start by substituting r = 0,1,2,3, … till LHS = RHS.

Complete step-by-step answer:

$\begin{align}

& {}^{9}{{P}_{5}}=\dfrac{9!}{\left( 9-5 \right)!}=\dfrac{9!}{4!}=\dfrac{9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5\times 4!}{4!}=9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5=15120 \\

& {}^{9}{{P}_{4}}=\dfrac{9!}{\left( 9-4 \right)!}=\dfrac{9!}{5!}=\dfrac{9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5!}{5!}=9\times 8\times 7\times 6=3024 \\

\end{align}$

Hence LHS $=15120+5\times 3024=30240$.

When r = 0, RHS = $\dfrac{10!}{\left( 10-0 \right)!}=1$

When r = 1, RHS = 10

When r = 2 RHS = $10\times 9=90$

When r = 3 RHS = $90\times 8=720$

When r = 4 RHS = $720\times 7=5040$

When r = 5 RHS = $5040\times 6=30240$

Hence, we have when r = 5 LHS = RHS.

Hence r = 5.

Note: Proof by argument:

Number of Permutations of 10 Letters taken 5 at a time = Number of permutations if a particular letter (say A) always occupies the first position + Number of permutations if that particular letter never occupies the first position.

LHS = \[{}^{10}{{P}_{5}}\].

The number of permutations if a particular letter (say A) always occupies the first position = Number of permutations of remaining 9 letter taken 4 at a time = \[{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\]

The number of permutations if a particular letter never occupies the first position = \[9\times {}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\] Because the first place has 9 choices [NOT TAKING THE PARTICULAR LETTER] and the remaining letters can be arranged in \[{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\] ways.

Now we know that $\left( n-r+1 \right){}^{n}{{P}_{r-1}}={}^{n}{{P}_{r}}$

Hence, we have

$\begin{align}

& \left( 9-5+1 \right){}^{9}{{P}_{4}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}} \\

& \Rightarrow 5{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}} \\

\end{align}$

Hence \[9{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}=5{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}+4{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}}+4{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\]

Hence, we have

\[\begin{align}

& {}^{10}{{P}_{5}}={}^{9}{{P}_{4}}+{}^{9}{{P}_{5}}+4{}^{9}{{P}_{4}} \\

& \Rightarrow {}^{10}{{P}_{5}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}}+5{}^{9}{{P}_{4}} \\

\end{align}\]

Complete step-by-step answer:

$\begin{align}

& {}^{9}{{P}_{5}}=\dfrac{9!}{\left( 9-5 \right)!}=\dfrac{9!}{4!}=\dfrac{9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5\times 4!}{4!}=9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5=15120 \\

& {}^{9}{{P}_{4}}=\dfrac{9!}{\left( 9-4 \right)!}=\dfrac{9!}{5!}=\dfrac{9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5!}{5!}=9\times 8\times 7\times 6=3024 \\

\end{align}$

Hence LHS $=15120+5\times 3024=30240$.

When r = 0, RHS = $\dfrac{10!}{\left( 10-0 \right)!}=1$

When r = 1, RHS = 10

When r = 2 RHS = $10\times 9=90$

When r = 3 RHS = $90\times 8=720$

When r = 4 RHS = $720\times 7=5040$

When r = 5 RHS = $5040\times 6=30240$

Hence, we have when r = 5 LHS = RHS.

Hence r = 5.

Note: Proof by argument:

Number of Permutations of 10 Letters taken 5 at a time = Number of permutations if a particular letter (say A) always occupies the first position + Number of permutations if that particular letter never occupies the first position.

LHS = \[{}^{10}{{P}_{5}}\].

The number of permutations if a particular letter (say A) always occupies the first position = Number of permutations of remaining 9 letter taken 4 at a time = \[{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\]

The number of permutations if a particular letter never occupies the first position = \[9\times {}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\] Because the first place has 9 choices [NOT TAKING THE PARTICULAR LETTER] and the remaining letters can be arranged in \[{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\] ways.

Now we know that $\left( n-r+1 \right){}^{n}{{P}_{r-1}}={}^{n}{{P}_{r}}$

Hence, we have

$\begin{align}

& \left( 9-5+1 \right){}^{9}{{P}_{4}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}} \\

& \Rightarrow 5{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}} \\

\end{align}$

Hence \[9{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}=5{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}+4{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}}+4{}^{9}{{P}_{4}}\]

Hence, we have

\[\begin{align}

& {}^{10}{{P}_{5}}={}^{9}{{P}_{4}}+{}^{9}{{P}_{5}}+4{}^{9}{{P}_{4}} \\

& \Rightarrow {}^{10}{{P}_{5}}={}^{9}{{P}_{5}}+5{}^{9}{{P}_{4}} \\

\end{align}\]
