Hi -
My husband gave me a new Samsung Galaxy mobile for out anniversaire gift. He set me a challenge which I have to solve before I can use the Phone.

A five-digit pass code 2015-04-25
Mary pose la question :

Question from Mary:

More on your published question:

I have the same type of lock, but set up a 5-digit pass code. Is that more or fewer possibilities than a 4-digit code. How many digits would make the lock most secure? I don't believe Werner specified this, but each number can only be used once. Thanks, Mary

A 4 digit code 2013-03-26
chris pose la question :
I saw a previous question about a 4 digit code type thing and I was wondering if you could email me that same type of thing. I changed the pin number on my phone's lock screen and I tried hard to remember it, then I had to go help my mom with something and I automatically forgot it and there is no way for me to get back on my phone. I need all of the possible 4 digit number combinations without the numbers 0, 1, or 2. It cannot be repeating, ascending, or descending.
I know you may not want to do all of them, but I really need it.

A punch-code lock box 2010-11-29
Doug pose la question :
I am a real estate agent that uses punch-code lock boxes on houses to store the keys. I need to crack the code on one of our boxes, so I need a list of the possible combinations.
4 digit code
Numbers 0-9
Each number can only be used once
Order of the numbers does not matter.

With advice from this site, I have calculated that there should be 210 possibilities. 10x9x8x7 (5040) gives me the total number possibilities and 4x3x2x1 (24) gives me the total number of ways to arrange those numbers. So if I divide the possibilities by the arrangement, I get 210. (5040 / 24 = 210) GREAT!!!

Now, how do I develop a list of those 210 combinations?

Thanks for your help.

A code on my pedometer 2010-02-19
Jacqui pose la question :
Hi I need to break a code on my pedometer. I have only 3 digits 1 2 and 3 but need to fill a 5 digit code. I have tried to find answers but they seem to relate to if the digits are only used once. I can use them in any order and repeated as many times. How many possibilities are there and is there an easy way to run through them. Many thanks

Five button push lock 2007-07-06

We have a 5 button push lock and we were wondering how many different codes were possible in this situation. In this lock each button can only be pressed once (ie it's not a numbered key pad) and order matters. How would we find out the # of possible codes?

I need to find the 4 digit number to access my voice mail. These numbers will be 0-9 & numbers can be repeated. Could you provide me with a list of possibly combinations? If not, do you know anywhere that I could get a list of combinations so I don't have to write it all down?
