Assume there are no restrictions on the remaining letters, and repetition is allowed. a) How many 4-letter station identifications are possible? b) How many 5-letter station identifications are possible? c) How many total station identifications are possible? d) The identification for a randomly-chosen radio station is 4 letters in length. What is the probability that all four letters are different? a) Set up the expression that would be used to calculate the number of possible 4-letter station identifications. The expression is ___ (Do not simplify.) There are ___ possible 4-letter station identifications. (Simplify your answer.) b) There are ___ possible 5-letter station identifications. (Simplify your answer.) c) The total number of possible station identifications is ___ (Simplify your answer.) d) If the identification for a randomly-chosen radio station is 4 letters in length, then the probability that all four letters are different is ___ (Round to three decimal places as needed.)
