What is the total number of license plates possible using this counting scheme? (Assume that each available space is occupied by a numeral, letter, symbol, or space. Give the answer in scientific notation. Round the first number to two decimal places.)

**MathMate**, Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 10:50pmAssume upper case only, gives 26 letters.

Add 10 digits, 1 space and 4 symbols.

Total 26+10+1+4=41 possible symbols.

Subtract the plate that has all spaces.

This is a 7 part experiment each with 41 outcomes, so the total number of possible plates is

N=41^7-1

=194754273880

I will let you do the rounding and the conversion to scientific notation.
