A state creates license plates that each contain two letters followed by three digits. The first letter must be a vowel ( A, E, I, O, U ) and duplicate letters and digits are allowed. How many different license plates are possible?

Think about how many choices there are for each spot. Each choice is unaffected by the other choices.
5*26 * 10*10*10 = 130,000
