Maximum Possible Combinations
Date: 1/23/96 at 3:32:55 From: Raphael Oscar Rues Hello, I wonder if you can tell me how can I calculate the following: ...Which is the maximal number of possibilities that I can obtain for n = digit? - like having a phone number with 9 digits. How many users could I theoretically cover? Thanks in advance for your help, Regards, Raphael

If you have a 9 digit phone number with any digit from 0-9 in each of the 9 places, you multiply 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits * 10 digits Since each of 9 times you have 10 choices for the number. -Doctor Jodi, The Math Forum
