What is the number of permutations for the words:

QUEUE

COMMITTEE

PROPOSITION

BASEBALL

You can arrange it in any order. You can also arrange it into any order of the letters.

You could use the math from FACTORIAL.

I need an answer ASAP!!!

as you know by now, after all the problems you have posted, n things can be permuted in n! ways.

If there are m duplicates, divide by m!

so, for PROPOSITION, since there are

11 letters

2 P's

3 O's

2 I's

there are 11!/(2!3!2!) distinguishable permutations of the letters.

Do the others in the same way.
