    you are on the right track

    26x26x26x10x10x10 gives you the TOTAL, including repeated digits and letters. this is the first part.

    the second part ask for how many with NO REPEATS. so its (26x26x26x10x10x10) MINUS (26x25x24x10x9x8) = number with NO repeats.

    hope this helps!

    Your right for most part but instead of 10 u gotta start at 9 so its 26*25*24*9*8*7
