10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2

Using the word "combinations" in the English sense (as opposed to mathematical sense the expert has used) where it often used in the mathematical sense of the word "permutations": Assuming the hundreds digit must be at least 1 (eg 99 = 099 is not considered a three digit number), then: 9 x 10 x 10 = 900.

The whole point of combinations is that the order of the number (or items) does not matter. Once you specify what the second number is, you are no longer looking at combinations.

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

If the 6 digits can be repeated, there are 1296 different combinations. If you cannot repeat digits in the combination there are 360 different combinations. * * * * * No. That is the number of PERMUTATIONS, not COMBINATIONS. If you have 6 different digits, you can make only 15 4-digit combinations from them.
