A certain state issues a series of automobile license plates such that each license plate

must have 2 letters followed by three digits. An example license plate would be AD 025 .

If the letters and the digits cannot be repeated, how many different license plates can be

issued by the state?

(a) 468,000 (b) 486,720 (c) 46,800 (d) 1,300 (e) 67,600

2. Relevant equations

Rules of factorials?

(ex: 5! = 5*4*3*2*1)

3. The attempt at a solution

How would I go about this?

I was thinking (26*25) + (10*9*8), but that is not an available option

Thanks
