Q. |
Find the total number of distinct vehicle numbers that can be formed using two letters followed by two numbers. Letters need to be distinct. |

✖ A. |
$60,000$ |

✔ B. |
$65,000$ |

✖ C. |
$70,000$ |

✖ D. |
$75,000$ |

**Solution:**

Option(**B**) is correct

Out of $26$ alphabets two distinct letters can be chosen in ${^{26}P_2}$ ways.

Coming to numbers part, there are $10$ ways (any number from $0$ to $9$ can be chosen) to choose the first digit and similarly another $10$ ways to choose the second digit.

Hence, there are totally $10×10 = 100$ ways.

Combined with letters there are ${^{26}P_2}× 100 = \textbf{65000}$ ways to choose vehicle numbers.

Why can't the alphabets be same. Why should be they distinct.

(eg. AA00)

26 X 26 X 10 X 10 = 67600

Having the same doubt. I guess the answer given in incorrect.

It should have been 26*26*10*10=67600
