Hi again!
Today in maths we were looking at ratios and probabilities, then we got this for homework and not only do I have no idea how it ties in with today's lesson, but I also have no idea how to do it.

The number of five letter words from the word 'magnetic' that end in a vowel is:
a) 360
b) 420
c) 840
d) 2520
e) 7560

1. The number of words would depend on the language. Just sorting letters do no make words. You may want to point this out to your teacher.

Offhand, in English, I can only think of three words that use those letters and end in a vowel.

tinge, mince, and mange.

2. oh, you're absolutely right; I was having such a hard time thinking that the least number of words could be 360.
Thanks
