Best Answer

Explanation:

The number of permutations of n different objects arranged r at a time - denoted as npr is given by the following formula.

number of permutations

The total number of the alphabet in the word MONDAY is 6

So, n = 6

 

(i) Number of 4 letter words that can be formed from the letters of the word MONDAY, without repetition of letters, is given by the number of permutations of 6 different objects taken 4 at a time. 

Thus, the required number of words that can be formed using 4 letters at a time is

number of permutations

Hence, the number of words that can be formed using 4 letters at a time is 360 

 

(ii)  Number of words that can be formed by using all the letters of the word MONDAY at a time is the number of permutations of 6 different objects taken 6 at a time.

Thus, the required number of words that can be formed when all letters are used at a time is
