Solution

When expanded, a3 b2 c4   would result in total 9 letters.
This is same as permuting 9 things, of which 3 are similar to the first kind, 2 are similar to the second kind and four are similar to the third kind, i.e. three as , two bs and four cs.
Required number of arrangements =\[\frac{9!}{3!2!4!}\]= 1260
