    \(\ \large \text{ This is a problem involving permuations...} \) \(\ \large \text{So the first two places of the plate are letters.There are 26 letters.}\) \(\ \large \text{So the first place could have} \frac{1}{26} \text{letters}\).

    For the letters, You can have 26^2 = 676 ways of arranging. For numbers, You can have 10^5 = 10000 ways Multiply them and you get 676 00000
