If the letters of computer are randomly arranged in all possible ways, the probability the word begins with a vowel in five out of 26, or 0.1923. You do not need to consider any other letters, or any permutations or combinations, because you only asked about the first letter.

this is a combination question. Assuming the letters cannot be used again and all letters make words of the same length you do the following: There are 9 letters so: it is 9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1 = 362,800. Because it has 2 of the same letter (a), I think you should take away from this 8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1, i.e. take away 40,320. So I think the answer is 322480. I am not sure if this is right, but the methodology of the first part (i.e. no repeating letters) is correct

The first letter can be any one of the 6 letters. For each of those . . .The second letter can be any one of the remaining 5 letters. For each of those . . .The third letter can be any one of the remaining 4 letters. For each of those . . .The fourth letter can be any one of the remaining 3 letters. For each of those . . .The fifth letter can be any one of the remaining 2 letters.The total number of different ways they can be arranged is (6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2) = 720 .

It is divisible by 2, which is the first prime number.If you want to factor it, you can start by taking out a factor pair of (2 x 5) for every zero it has at the end.

The different ways the vowels can be arranged together is 3x2x1 = 6. The number of places this arrangement can go within the word is 5. This means there are 30 possible arrangements for the vowels. The consonants can be arranged amongst themselves with 4 possibilities for first place, 3 for second, 2 for third and 1 for fourth. This gives us 4x3x2=24 combinations. So with 30 possible arrangements for the vowels, and 24 for the consonants, this gives us 720 possible ways of arranging the letters in the word offices so that the vowels always come together.

acronyms are arranged to chose the first letters of any name or compounded words for company or offical name etc to make a word, in which consonats followed by vowels. in this way two letters can be taken from a word. it is pronounced as word.
