there are 13,800 options at the least. that's being really flexible though because that's assuming that the LETTER character isn't an M realistically, there are about 15,000 combo's here with just these 3 characters missing. so, yeah. |

See how easy that was? --- GT: Call Me Rhythm |
No vowels, N, or S. No 0 or 5 in numbers. Check your math again. --- The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed. Beyond the beaten path lies the absolute end. It matters not who you are... Death awaits you. |

BillyBob_21 posted...I_Got_Rhythm posted...lizard_cops5771 posted... here's my geneeus ekuashion dat i make 4 u 3 different characters. 25 different characters to choose from (18 letters, 7 numbers.) again, this is being flexible, because the chances that M is chosen two times is really unlikely. so we have (25!)/((25-3)!) which simplifies to 25! / 22! which is... yeah, 13,800. |
mrgreen55 posted... There aren't "thousands" of combinations. One of the 3 spots is an M, and the only numbers used in the other spots are 2,3,4,6,7,8 or 9. Oh I didn't realize it was narrowed down that close. Well it's a good thing he narrowed it down that far lol, because from just the info in the first post, it would have been over a million different combinations. But you guys are correct, with the current info, it's just over a thousand different combos. |

I_Got_Rhythm posted...BillyBob_21 posted...I_Got_Rhythm posted...lizard_cops5771 posted... a)Making each possible character pool from BOTH letters and numbers makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE b)You're not accounting at all for the fact that a KNOWN character is M c)You obviously have no idea what situations factorials are actually used for --- GT: Call Me Rhythm |
Oh and thanks for making yourself look stupid! :D --- GT: Call Me Rhythm |
lI_Got_Rhythm posted... a) how does that not make sense? we don't know if the second spot is a letter or a number. b) i did, if i didn't then the number would be 26!/23! c) factorials are used as a shorthand for solving combinations and permutations in the mathematics community, among other things i like how you get hurt about it though, makes it way more fun |
