**Mackenzie**, Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 7:30pmfor a i thought you were supposed to do 9*8*7*6 and the answer that i got was 3,024.

for c i got 9*9=81

**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, February 27, 2008 at 11:12amThe numerals get smaller if you are considering probabilities

*without replacement*. In other words, using a numeral in one position would prohibit its use in other positions. However, the use of any numeral does not effect the probabilities of the remaining numerals.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
