Sum

Find the number of permutations of letters of the following word: REPRESENT

#### Solution

The word REPRESENT has 9 letters of which ‘E’ is repeated 3 times, ‘R’ is repeated 2 times, and the rest all are different.
∴ The number of distinct permutations

= ("n"!)/("p"!"q"!)

= (9!)/(3!2!)

= (9xx8xx7xx6xx5xx4)/2

= 30240
