Sorry about that.<BR/><BR/>So we have a six-digit number that has three different integers of which only two of each integer can appear.<BR/><BR/>The second restriction is that the number cannot be reptitive, eg. 761761.<BR/><BR/>That will take a little more head scratching on my part.Mr. Donhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03794433688939455277noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-1164133441348916072006-11-21T13:24:00.000-05:002006-11-21T13:24:00.000-05:00Not sure I understand Mr. Don's answer.

Seems to me that for each 3-number sequence, there are 6 possibilities (which is 3 factorial), and then that there are 30 total possible combinations where the second sequence isn't the same as the first. In other words, the first one can be any of the six possibilities, and the second one can be any of the remaining 5, and 6 * 5 = 30.Andyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09479999070145487506noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-1164125209452228762006-11-21T11:06:00.000-05:002006-11-21T11:06:00.000-05:00This is a factorial:3! = 6This is a factorial:<BR/><BR/>3! = 6Mr. Donhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03794433688939455277noreply@blogger.com
