The letters of the word ALLAHABAD are rearranged to form
new words and put in a dictionary. If the dictionary has only
these words and one word on every page in alphabetical
order then what is the page number on which the letter
LABADALAH comes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4The number of pages where the first letter of each new word is L is given by: 8!/4! = 1680 pages. Therefore the number of the first page where the first letter of the new word is L is 7560  1680 = page 5880. Now we need to find the number of pages after the word LAAAABDHL that occur until we reach the word LABADALAH.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4The number of new words beginning with LAA is given by 6!/2 = 360. Therefore the number of the first page with new words beginning with LAB is found from: 5880 + 360 + 1 = page 6241. The number of new words where the first letters are LABAA is given by 4! = 24. Therefore the number of the first page with new words beginning with LABAD is found from: 6241 + 24 +1 = page 6266.
