## I will now try and predict

Conclusion

I shall now try a new formula which will account for words that have more than one letter repeated. the new formula is  N!
n1!n2!n 3!………………
Where n1! is the number of times the first letter repeated and n2! is the number of times the second letter is repeated and whenn3! Is the number of times the third letter is repeated. The ……………… means more nx! which can be added depending on how many letters are repeated.

I will try the new formula with XXXYY.
=
5!
3! x 2!
=
10
Conclusion

## = 8!    2! = 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1                  2 x 1 = 20160 arrangements

Now, we could start with looking at a case where one letter is repeated twice, however this is already been done. As we can see from above, one letter repeated twice is the same as one pair of the same letter.

2. ## Emma's Dilemma Question One: Investigate the number of different arrangements of the letters

This means that the total number of arrangements possible is reduced by different amounts, according to the total number of letters, the number of repeated letters, and the number of times each one is repeated. For example For 6 letters, all different, there are "6 X 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1"arrangements.

I worked the formula out using my prediction on the previous page, and checked the formula first by seeing if it worked for the results I already had, then by comparing it with the graph of results. It did, so I now know the formula for words with 4 letters

So, by using factorial notation (!) I can predict the number of different arrangements for words where all the letters are different. 6-letter word: 6 ? 5 ? 4 ? 3 ? 2 ?1 = 720 different arrangements. 7-letter word: 7 ? 6 ? 5 ?
