In the English alphabet, there are 7 capital letters that look the same after being rotated 180∘. Those letters are H, I, N, O, S, X, and Z. How many different 3 letter "words" can be made from these letters such that when the word is rotated 180∘, the resulting word is the same?

number of ways = 7 x 7 x 1 = 49
