Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so this is a combinatorial problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are 5 vowels, and they're asking you to choose 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so would it be 10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but you can definitely list them all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I would just pick two letter like a and e and then list all the possible letters that can be combined with them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. ae 2. ai 3. ao 4. au 5. ei 6. eo 7. eu 8. io 9. iu 10. ou

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is also a formula for this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combination search for the words "Finally there is a formula which exhibits"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if they mean "combinations", then the answer is 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0however, if they mean permutations, that is iu and ui are different permutations, then the answer would be 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since there are 5 possible letters for the first spot, and then 4 possible letters for the second spot. so 5x4 = 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in that case, just take the 10 we listed, and reverse the letters for options 1120

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think they're asking for the 20 different permutations. since "permutation" and "combination" have different standard meanings in math: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permutation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if they were asking for the 10 we listed, the problem should have said "list all the combinations", not permuations

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so yeah, just take the list, and make sure you have one possibility with the letters reversed for each of the 10 listed
