Hey all, I had a few questions regarding some probability theory which have me completely stumped, would someone mind pointing me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance!
Assume that all license plates in Kentucky consist of three numbers followed by three letters.
How many ways are there to get a Kentucky license plate with the number 41 appearing (without any digits between) and with the first two letters of your name appearing consecutively in order?
(If the first two letters of your name are the same you should calculate this problem using any two distinct letters.)
