a licence plate that has 3 numbers from 0 to 9 followed by 2 letters
How many license plate combinations can we form?
We multiply as follows:
[LIST]
[*][0-9] = 10 possible digits (D)
[*]A-Z = 26 possible letters (L)
[/LIST]
The problem asks for this:

a license plate has 3 letters followed by 4 numbers

a license plate has 3 letters followed by 4 numbers
There are 26 letters A-Z and 10 numbers 0-9. So we have:

A license plate is made up of 2 letter and 3 single digit numbers

A license plate is made up of 2 letter and 3 single digit numbers.
There are 26 letters (A-Z). And there are 10 single digit numbers [0-9]. So our total combinations are:
Letter - Letter - Number - Number - Number
26 * 26 * 10 * 10 * 10 = [B]676,000[/B]

A RECTANGLE HAS A PERIMETER OF 196 CENTIMETERS. IF THE LENGTH IS 6 TIMES ITS WIDTH FIND TH DIMENSION

A RECTANGLE HAS A PERIMETER OF 196 CENTIMETERS. IF THE LENGTH IS 6 TIMES ITS WIDTH FIND TH DIMENSIONS OF THE RECTANGLE?
Whoa... stop screaming with those capital letters! But I digress...
The perimeter of a rectangle is:
P = 2l + 2w
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]P = 196
[*]l = 6w
[/LIST]
Plug these into the perimeter formula:
2(6w) + 2w = 196
12w + 2w = 196
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=12w%2B2w%3D196&pl=Solve']Plugging this equation into our search engine[/URL], we get:
[B]w = 14[/B]
Now we put w = 14 into equation (2) above:
l = 6(14)
[B]l = 84
[/B]
So our length (l), width (w) of the rectangle is (l, w) = [B](84, 14)
[/B]
Let's check our work by plugging this into the perimeter formula:
2(84) + 2(14) ? 196
168 + 28 ? 196
196 = 196 <-- checks out

Each of letters in the word PROPER are on separate cards, face down on the table. If you pick a card at random, what is the probability that its letter will be P or R?
PROPER has 6 letters in it. It has 2 P's and 2 R's. So we have:
Pr(P or R) = Pr(P) + Pr(R)
Pr(P or R) = 2/6 + 2/6
Pr(P or R) = 4/6
We can simplify this. So [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=4%2F6&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']we type this fraction in our search engine[/URL], choose simplify, and we get:

PLOTTING has to 8 letters. It has 2 T'sand 1 G, so we have:
P(T or G) = P(T) + P(G)
P(T or G) = 2/8 + 1/8
P(T or G) = [B]3/8[/B]

Serial numbers for a product are to made using 4 letters followed by 4 numbers. If the letters are to be taken from the first 5 letters of the alphabet with repeats possible and the numbers are taken from the digits 0 through 9 with no repeats, how many serial numbers can be generated?
First 5 letters of the alphabet are {A, B, C, D, E}
The 4 letters can be chosen as possible:
5 * 5 * 5 * 5
The number are not repeatable, so the 4 numbers can be chosen as:
