## Distinct Ways to Arrange Word STANFORD - Workout

The below workout is the step by step procedure to find how many number of distinct ways to arrange the 8 letters (alphabets) of word "STANFORD". Users may use any other word by changing the word "STANFORD" to find the total number of distinct ways to arrange different words.

__Step by step workout__

step 1 Address the formula, input parameters and values

__Formula:__

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

__Input Parameters & Values:__

Total number of alphabets (n) & subsets (n1, n2, . . nk) in the word "STANFORD"

n = 8

Subsets : S = 1; T = 1; A = 1; N = 1; F = 1; O = 1; R = 1; D = 1;

n_{1}(S) = 1, n_{2}(T) = 1, n_{3}(A) = 1, n_{4}(N) = 1, n_{5}(F) = 1, n_{6}(O) = 1, n_{7}(R) = 1, n_{8}(D) = 1

step 2 Apply the input parameter values in the nPr formula

= 8!/(1! 1! 1! 1! 1! 1! 1! 1! )

= 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 x 8/{(1) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1)}

= 40320/1

= 40320

In 40320 distinct ways, the letters of word "STANFORD" can be arranged.
