Solution

The word MATHEMATICS consists of 11 letters that include two Ms, two As, and two Ts.
Total number of arrangements of the letters of the word MATHEMATICS =\[\frac{11!}{2!2!2!}\]

Number of words in which the first word is fixed as C = Number of arrangements of the remaining 10 letters, of which there are two As, two Ms and two Ts =\[\frac{10!}{2!2!2!}\]

Number of words in which the first word is fixed as T = Number of arrangements of the remaining 10 letters, of which there are two As and two Ms =\[\frac{10!}{2!2!}\]
