Consider the word \(\displaystyle MISSISSIPPI\) that is a string of eleven letters not all unique.I still don’t understand this very well.
For example, for IIEE, is it 4!/2!
(4 spots for the letters to go in, divided by 2 factorial times 2 factorial because there are 2 E and 2 I’s that you don’t want to double count. Argh, I thought I had a handle on combinations and permutations but this question is making me understand less. For example the below makes perfect sense to me, but not the ICELINE question
But you have done that. If you are asking for a recipe lets go back to \(\displaystyle MSSISSIPPI\).Yes, I have no problem understanding that. I’m actually looking for help on how to count the E, I, EI, EII etc subsets in the word ICELINE, making 4 letter words
