# algebra/ Can see I am right

A state's license plates consist of three letters followed by three numerals, and 241 letter arrangements are not allowed. How many plates can the state issue?

I did it this way
26x26x26x10x10x10= 17,576,000
Have I done this correctly or am I missing a part. THANK YOU SO MUCH
