Can letters be used twice? Do the words have to be in the dictionary?

In that case, for PLANETS, the possible fourletter combinations (in any order) are 5 x 4 = 20. For each combination, there are 4! = 24 ways (permutations) for arranging the letters. That makes 20x24 = 480 possible "words". Most will not be in the dctionary.
Try your own reasoning with the MAMMALS problem. We will be glad to critique your work.
