STRESSED word

Each letter in STRESSED is printed on identical cards, one letter per card, and assembled in random order. Calculate the probability that the cards spell DESSERTS when assembled.

Correct answer:

p =  0.0298 %

Step-by-step explanation:

n1=1 n=8 n(S)=3 n(T)=1 n(R)=1 n(E)=2 n(D)=1  n2=n!n(S)! n(T)! n(R)! n(E)! n(D)!  n2=8!3! 2!=3360  p=100 n1n2=100 13360=5168=0.0298%



We will be pleased if You send us any improvements to this math problem. Thank you!

where does 3! and 2! come from?

#
Dr Math
some characters are repeated: 3xS + 2xE; so there is no difference between first second and third S or 1st or 2nd E char.

How did you get 3360

#
Math student
dividing the factorials of 8!= 40,320 / 3!= 6 x 2!=2 so 40,320/12=3360
8!= 8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1= 40,320

why is n1 = 1?

n1 is the count of positive card (word DESSERTS) -> only one. n2 are the count of all combinations
