Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a) Let's try first by calculating the total number of passwords without requirements, and then subtracting the total number of passwords which DON'T meet the requirements.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now how many don't meet the 'at least one digit' rule, how many don't meet the 'at least one lower case letter', and how many don't meet the 'at least one upper case letter' requirement?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\( (26 +26)^{10}\) Have no digit \( (26+10)^{10} \) Have no lower case \((26+10)^{10} \) Have no upper case

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We still double count the ones who break two or more rules, so we have to get rid of them. \(10^{10} \) break both upper and lower case rule \(26^{10} \) break both upper case and digit rule \(26^{10} \) break both lower case and digit rule \(0\) break all three rules, because it must contain at least a digit or letter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you'are right, I made a typo..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we have \((10+26+26)^{10}  ((10+26)^{10} + (10+26)^{10} + (26+26)^{10}  (10^{10} + 26^{10} + 26^{10})) \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm pretty sure it means a1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm, then password cannot be begun by a number..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, one thing to ask is, must all digits be preceded by a number, or just at least one digit?

cinar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and also no number is successive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think a123456789 is also okay, because it has one digit immediately preceded by a letter. They didn't say ALL must follow the rule, just one.

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 1a23456789 would be ok too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok. So one thing we can take into consideration is that for a password to have a digit and be invalid, it would have to have to be 1... 11.... 111.... basically a bunch of digits in order with no letters in between.

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So one way is 1 digit and then 9 letters, with at least one capital and one lowercase

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So find how many ways we can have a password that is valid in (a) and not valid in (b) and subtract that from (a)
