# Random math prblem

I got this little thing from my math classâ€¦ wondered if any of you wanted to have a go (all you MIT people will thing this is a joke ) The problem is you have to figure out how many different possible license plates you could have (3 random numbers and 3 random letters)â€¦ Any of you got it?>

well since there are 26 letters in the alphabet you do
262626
and 10 numbers
101010
you get 17576 and 1000
so you do 17576*1000 and you get
17576000

PS! Thatâ€™s just my logicâ€¦ dunno if it really is that way

write a computer program to figure it out for you. Thats what I would do.

Cool can we have a help with homework forum?

haha I have no idea Isnâ€™t there a nifty formula involving the nCr and nPr? I havenâ€™t touched probabilities in at least 4 or 5 years, and I never really learned it well enough either.

EDIT: Sykoâ€™s way sounds like it is right.

:cyclops:

Aaaahhhh my GCSE was on probabilities.

I was funded the costs and used skittles then at the end I sold loads of skittles and made a profite on my high school courses ehehehehehee

hehee, I had 15 points (A+) in the probabilities test :love:
hmm, it has been a while but I would say Syko is right.
