stevelaz can someone please explain this?
stevelaz Got It...26 letters and 10 numbers (0-9 inc)
chamad I thought the permutation rule applies : 3P26(for letters) * 3P9(For numbers)?!
chamad They applied the combination formula. Why not the permutation? I think the order does matter for Licence plates. Does'nt it?
got2pass the question specifically states that the order be letters for the first three, and then numbers for the last three digits
vinooka You have six slots to fill - - - - - -

The first slot can be filled by a one of 26 letters - so 26 ways.
Second slot again can be filled in 26 different ways (since repetition is allowed...otherwise it's only 25)
similarly, third - 26, Fourth - 10, Fifth - 10, Sixth - 10

26x26x26x10x10x10
vinooka if repetition is not allowed, then the answer would be - 26x25x24x10x9x8 = 11232000
