    The number of permutations of the four different letters taken two at a time, without repetitions is 4P2. The number of permutations of the four different numbers taken three at a time, with repetitions is 4^3. The total number of different codes that are possible is given by: \[\large \frac{4\times3\times2\times1}{2}\times4^{3}=you\ can\ calculate\]
