How many words with or without meaning can be formed using all the letters of the word ‘MONDAY’ assuming, that no letter is repeated, if all letters are used at a time.rightwards double arrow     


Number of letters in word 'Monday' = 6 (all distinct)
         Number of vowels = 2 (O and A)
        All six letters to be used.
rightwards double arrow                             n = 6,  r = 6
rightwards double arrow           Number of permutations = straight P presuperscript straight n subscript straight r space equals space straight P presuperscript 6 subscript 6 space equals space fraction numerator 6 factorial over denominator 0 factorial end fraction space equals space fraction numerator 6 space straight x space 5 space straight x space 4 space straight x space 3 space straight x space 2 space straight x space 1 space over denominator 1 end fraction space equals 720.
Hence, the total number of words formed = 720.
