Here's the Solution to this Question


English alphabet has 26 letters. From them the password from 6 different letters can be made in 26•25•24•23•22•21=165765600different ways.

Answer. C.


1. 3•2=6 ways.

2. We need the product rule:

4•4•4•4•4•4•4•4•4•4=4^{10}=1048576 ways.





The pigeonhole principle states that if n items are put into m containers, with n>m, then at least one container must contain more than one item. We have n\in N people and m=3 various for their families. n>3, there are many (at least four) people in the world who have the same first and last name families.
