## lgbasallote 3 years ago how many 4 letter words can be made from the word LGBASALLOTE

1. lgbasallote

by the way...the words don't have to be legitimate words

2. MathSofiya

goat boat

3. romoore93

sale

4. lgbasallote

not real words....

5. lgbasallote

it's just how many possible 4 letter words

6. lgbasallote

rearrangement

7. romoore93

|dw:1349841083602:dw| infinity

8. tyteen4a03

The solution is a finite number.

9. lgbasallote

not infinite...

10. pathosdebater

214,358,881

11. lgbasallote

??

12. lgbasallote

that's big

13. MathSofiya

$\pi$

14. HyperChemist

hello again! well, the numbers can take any place at any time, there are 11 numberal places, therefore the answer is 11^11....wait....

15. lgbasallote

....careful....

16. pathosdebater

There are 11 places, but only 8 different letters

17. HyperChemist

exactly! I was thinking of that, however, they don't have to be words!

18. petewe

i'd say over 9000

19. HyperChemist

it will no matter what make a different combination, however i'd say you may be right in context since the other answer given was wrong, therefore maybe 8^8 is correct?

20. pathosdebater

It is either 11^8 or 8^11.

21. lgbasallote

where are you getting those numbers....

22. HyperChemist

Ahhh....yes...

23. HyperChemist

look, The combination of letters can be arranged in ANY fashion taking the space of ANY number....there are, 11 places for only 8 letters that could make a possible combination.

24. HyperChemist

however I know im wrong...lets go back, ohgod....4 letter words :0

25. pathosdebater

Oops.... forgot to add the 4-letter word variable

26. lgbasallote

it's much more difficult than what you think.....

27. tyteen4a03

I suppose LLLG is a valid "word"... *hint hint*

28. lgbasallote

11^8 still doesn't make sense though

29. HyperChemist

this changes it to 11^11*4, or 11^11^4?!?! and yes, I know why because it can be any word

30. pathosdebater

Well 11 doesn't matter anymore...

31. Zekarias

Here is the answer$11!(1-\frac{ 1 }{ 6! })$

32. lgbasallote

no...

33. lgbasallote

i don't even ahve any idea how you got that

34. HyperChemist

hum....11 does matter because thats the number of letters we have....

35. HyperChemist

was I close?

36. HyperChemist

oh! 11^4?

37. pathosdebater

4^11

38. lgbasallote

i doubt there's even "11" in the solution

39. pathosdebater

Do you even have the answer?

40. lgbasallote

41. lgbasallote

and no i do not...im trying to learn it too

42. lgbasallote

i believe the answer should be less than 1960

43. HyperChemist

can you explain to be what 11P4/3 is in the other question? im bad at reading..math..

44. lgbasallote

ironic that you're asking someone with a picture that says "i hate math"

45. lgbasallote

where's 11P4/3?

46. HyperChemist

almost down a page...

47. HyperChemist

what were you trying todo, or explain in the later sentences of your text?

48. lgbasallote

same thing i was trying in teh beginning

49. HyperChemist

hum...

50. HyperChemist

I see....man, I could of never taught of it, the letter cannot take the same space again, but intercahnge from either left or right into spaces it hasnt taken...

51. HyperChemist

11.10.9....(so on) -------------- 4

52. HyperChemist

no, * 4

53. lgbasallote

that's not the solution here though...like i pointed out in the other question

54. HyperChemist

11,10.... ------------- 2^4..... This ones it

55. lgbasallote

no idea where you got that...

56. HyperChemist
57. HyperChemist

I might continue tommorow, I am interested..

58. HyperChemist

goofnight and thank you!

59. lgbasallote

i told you it's very difficult...
