yeah i get it now there is no more information needed sorry for the confusion. its just asking how many different combos on the lock can you try with 5 tumblers and 6 positions in each. so whats 5 x 6? do you know?

some.random.cool.kid

some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
ahhhhh my mistake sorry got it now this isnt simple multiplication.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah i know
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
you were supposed to power it ...
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 5 to the 6th power?
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
for example 6^5 this means 6 times it self 5 time which would look a little something like this: 6*6*6*6*6*6=7776
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok other way around
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
so i assume the final answer is 7776 try that and tell me if you get it right :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
would it be 5 to the 6th power or 6th to the 5th power
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
hmm your right nice catch... 5 to the 6th power. thanks
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
because its 5 tumblers and in it 6 positions.
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
so instead it should look something like this 5*5*5*5*5 = 15625
some.random.cool.kid
  • some.random.cool.kid
so you think you got it now? @ksc1012
