You have 6 choices for each of the 3 elements, hence: $\displaystyle N=6\cdot6\cdot6=216$ 2.) You have 26 choices for the first two elements and 10 choices for the next 4 elements, hence: $\displaystyle N=26^2\cdot10^4=6760000$ 3.) You have 2 choices for each of the 10 elements, hence: $\displaystyle N=2^{10}=1024$ 4.) You have 9 choices for each of the 6 elements, hence: $\displaystyle N=9^6=531441$
