  2. for a i thought you were supposed to do 9*8*7*6 and the answer that i got was 3,024.

    for b i got 9*8=72

    for c i got 9*9=81

  3. The numerals get smaller if you are considering probabilities without replacement. In other words, using a numeral in one position would prohibit its use in other positions. However, the use of any numeral does not effect the probabilities of the remaining numerals.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
