  1. the two letters at the front cannot be repeated, so that is 26*25
    there are one 10 of digits in each of the
    next 4 places, with the digits repeated, so that would be 10*10*10*10

    no of ways = 26*25*10*10*10*10 = 6500000

    I don't understand at all how you came up with 26*24*24*23*22*21*20
