# How Many Ways are There to Order the Letters of Word FOX?

The 3 letters word FOX can be arranged in 6 distinct ways. The below detailed information shows how to find how many ways are there to order the letters FOX and how it is being calculated in the real world problems.

**Distinguishable Ways to Arrange the Word FOX**

The below step by step work generated by the word permutations calculator shows how to find how many different ways can the letters of the word FOX be arranged.

__Objective:__

Find how many distinguishable ways are there to order the letters in the word FOX.

__Step by step workout:__

step 1 Address the formula, input parameters and values to find how many ways are there to order the letters FOX.

__Formula:__

nPr =n!/(n1! n2! . . . nr!)

__Input parameters and values:__

Total number of letters in FOX:

n = 3

Distinct subsets:

Subsets : F = 1; O = 1; X = 1;

Subsets' count:

n_{1}(F) = 1, n_{2}(O) = 1, n_{3}(X) = 1

step 2 Apply the values extracted from the word FOX in the (nPr) permutations equation

nPr = 3!/(1! 1! 1! )

= 1 x 2 x 3/{(1) (1) (1)}

= 6/1

= 6

nPr of word FOX = 6

Hence,

The letters of the word FOX can be arranged in 6 distinct ways.

Apart from the word FOX, you may try different words with various lengths with or without repetition of letters to observe how it affects the nPr word permutation calculation to find how many ways the letters in the given word can be arranged.
