Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are the numbers of the SSN for example if the number is 121212121 in the SSN(x) (x1)(x+2)(x1)(x+2) and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so you want a SSN such that SSN(x) = SSN(x') Now your SSN is 121212121 4 2s and 5 1s and In total 9 numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm I am not sure, Maybe \[\Huge9_{P_{4}} + 9_{P_{5}}\] \[\frac{9!}{5!} + \frac{9!}{4!}\] \[ 9\times8\times7\times6 + 9\times8\times7\times6\times5\] People can have same SSN polynomial as yours
