    For example : 121212121, order doesnt matter how many different ways can you arrange the digets?

    Too many to count would be my best guess.

    9 times 9 times 9 times 9 times 9 times 9 times 9 times 9 times 9 = 387 420 489

    Order doesn't matter and there's repetition

    There are 1,000,000,000 different 9-digit numbers, ranging from 000,000,000 to 999,999,999.

    9! so it would be 9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1=362880

    are you looking to find the number of arrangement of 121212121 or any 9 digit number. The first is trivial...the second is a much longer computation

    number of arrangement of 121212121. I don't remember how to do it.

    uh oh I did \[\frac{9!}{4!} + \frac{9!}{5!}\]

    what is exactly meant by order doesn't matter?

    is 12 = 21 if order doesn't matter?

    how would you do it for 121212121 if order matters

    so if you didn't care about the order of 12121212 you would treat all the \(\frac{9!}{5!4!}\) ways to arrange it as being the same.

    doesn't involve nPr or nCr?

    hmm 5 1s and 4 2s total 9 position is it \[\frac{9!}{4!} + \frac{9!}{5!}\]? (order matters)
