Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a possibility of 10 numbers in each place. There are 9 places in a social security number (123456789)… 10^9=10x10x10x10x10x10x10x10x10=1 billion =1 billion combinations is this right?????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You calculate it with the formula 10*10*10*10, since each of the four codes has 10 possible digits. Social security numbers are the same. You specified that numbers and letters can not be repeated. Therefore the 3 numbers will be 10*9*8. The two letters will be 26*25. Therefore the total possibilities will be 10*9*8*26*25.
