I_Got_Rhythm posted...lizard_cops5771 posted... You guys can criticize when you guys show me your genius equations kay? And for the record, permutations and combinations are essentially one in the same- at least for this math problem. GT: Call Me Rhythm |
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. |

lizard_cops5771 posted... 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 |
