Pls check if my answer is correct

26C3*10C4

=26!/(26-3)!3! . 10!/(10-4)!4!

= 26*25*24*23!/23!*6 . 10*9*8*7*6!/6!*4*3*2*1

=15600/6 * 5040/24

=2600*210

=546000

I didn't see that letters or numbers cant be used more than once.

26*26*26*26*10*10*10*10

As I read it AAAA0000 is allowed, your number didn't include those.
