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

The 4 letters word READ can be arranged in 24 distinct ways. The below detailed information shows how to find how many ways are there to order the letters READ and how it is being calculated in the real world problems.

**Distinguishable Ways to Arrange the Word READ**

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 READ be arranged.

__Objective:__

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

__Step by step workout:__

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

__Formula:__

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

__Input parameters and values:__

Total number of letters in READ:

n = 4

Distinct subsets:

Subsets : R = 1; E = 1; A = 1; D = 1;

Subsets' count:

n_{1}(R) = 1, n_{2}(E) = 1, n_{3}(A) = 1, n_{4}(D) = 1

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

nPr = 4!/(1! 1! 1! 1! )

= 1 x 2 x 3 x 4/{(1) (1) (1) (1)}

= 24/1

= 24

nPr of word READ = 24

Hence,

The letters of the word READ can be arranged in 24 distinct ways.

Apart from the word READ, 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.
