I wrote 6 because 24 / 2 = 12 then half 12 because it's asking for unordered combinations.
2c) By writing out all the permutations and all the 2-letter unordered
combinations, show that the two methods described above give the same result,
and that the number of results are consistent with the numbers you calculated
above: But they don't give the same result.... one gives 24 and the other 6.... what is it asking for exactly?
