Accepted Solution

A:

A) 672750

B) 68250

C) 2960100

Explanation

A) We have 26 letters from which to choose 4, and 10 digits from which to choose 2:

[tex]_{26}C_4\times_{10}C_2=\frac{26!}{4!22!}\times\frac{10!}{2!8!}=14950\times45=672750[/tex]

B) We have 26 letters from which to choose 2, and 10 digits from which to choose 4:

[tex]_{26}C_2\times_{10}C_4=\frac{26!}{2!24!}\times\frac{10!}{4!6!}=325\times210=68250[/tex]

C) We have 26 letters from which to choose 5, and 10 digits from which to choose 2:

[tex]_{26}C_5\times_{10}C_2=\frac{26!}{5!21!}\times\frac{10!}{2!8!}=65780\times45=2960100[/tex]
