Four combinations: tam ham mat hat Hope it helps (:!

Starting with three different letters, six two-letter combinations can be made, if the order of the two letters is important. Only three combinations can be made if the order of the two letters is not important. Example: ABC AB AC BA BC CA CB - six variations But if (for your purposes) BA is the same as AB, Then there are only three: AB AC BC

Because there are 7 letters that don't repeat, 7X6X5X4=840 combinations. To give you an idea of how to solve the problem, if there had been 9 letters and you wanted to make combinations of 3 letters, you would multiply: 9X8X7=504
