Can you give an example of what kind of combination you are talking about?Originally Posted by Maths Illiterate

For each slot you have eight possibilities.
And there are eight slots thus you have.

I really do not see what is so challenging about this problem that the schools would offer $200 dollars for anyone who can answer it (in fact the school can reject this deal because in law a contract is valid when there is consideration-meaning both parties gain something, which is not true here, thus no contract-basically no $200). Unless it is a special-ed school
In the third thread I understand that different combinations are given. It does not verify if different arrangements are counted
e.g. 11111112 and
21111111
So I am asking now,....the question specified "combinations", Shouldn't arrangements be excluded?
I agree that my calculation to exclude the arrangements was wrong however I don't think it is simply 8^8 if arrangements are not counted.
waiting for reply
