How many words, with or without meaning, each of 2 vowels and 3 consonants can be formed from the letters of the word DAUGHTER?
Number ways of selecting 2 vowels & 3 consonants
= 3C2 × 5C3
= 3!/2!(3 − 2)! × 5!/3!(5 − 3)!
= 3!/2!1! × 5!/3!2!
= 30
Now,
Each of these 5 letters can be arranged in 5 ways
Number of arrangements = 5P5
= 5!/(5 − 5)!
= 5!/0!
= 5!
= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1
= 120
Thus,
Total number of words
= Number of ways of selecting × Number of arrangements
= 30 × 120
= 3600
