Permutations

posted by .

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!!!

  • Permutations -

    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.
