How many 2-letter codes can be formed using the letters A, B, C, D, E and F? Repeated letters are allowed. Companies whose stocks are listed on a stock exchange have their company name represented either by 2 or 3 letters (repetition of letters is not allowed). What is the maximum number of companies that can be listed on the exchange? Ten volumes of an encyclopedia are arranged on a bookshelf. How many different arrangements are possible?

How many different committees are possible? How many different committees are possible that include three juniors and three seniors? WPA-PSK, a wireless network security system, suggests that users choose a password, at least 8 characters long, that is a random selection of the letters a through z and the numbers 0 through 9, where repetition of a letter or a number is allowed. If a person chooses an 8-character password, how many different passwords are possible? Write the number in exponential or scientific notation. Computer hackers use programs to try to gain access to the computer network by finding its password. Suppose a program could check 1000 possible passwords each second. How long, to the nearest year, would it take such a computer to try all possible passwords that are 8 characters long? Assume there are 365 days in a year.
