Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh... yeah you should state clearly that the numbers appear at the end, that was a bit ambiguous.. if the numbers should be in the last two spots, its 26^8 * 10, yes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1number of English alphbet = 26 number of number = 10 The first and the last one is fixed that is s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 3 Where _ can be a letter or a number Case one: the number is the second one, that is s (number) (letter)x6 3 Number of combinations = 1 times 10 times 26^6 times 1 = 10 x 26^6 Case two, the number is the third one, that is s (letter) (number) (letter)x5 3 = 1 times 26 times 10 times 26^5 times1 = 10 x 26^6 ... Case seven, the number is the 8th one, that is s (letter)x6 (number) 3 = 1 times 26^6 times 10 times 1 = 26^6 times 1 Add all the cases, P required = 7 x 10 x 26^6 This must be wrong... I hardly solve a probability/combination question correctly
