FOUR BASIC COUNTING PRINCIPLES 33 we might have a multiset M with three a's, one b, two e's, and four d's, that is, 10 elements of 4 different types: 3 of type a, 1 of type b, 2 of type e, and 4 of type d. We shall usually indicate a multiset by specifying the number of times different types of elements occur in it. 3 The numbers 3,1,2, and 4 are the repetition numbers of the multiset M. A set is a multiset that has all repetition numbers equal to 1. To include the listed case (b) when there is no limit on the number of times an object of each type can occur (except for that imposed by the size of the arrangement), we allow infinite repetition numbers.

Bk (thinking of color 1, color 2, ... , color k), and we also think of the parts as boxes. We then have the following result .. 3 Let n be a positive integer and let nl, n2, ... ,nk be positive integers with n = nl + n2 + ... + nk· The number of ways to partition a set of n objects into k labeled boxes in which Box 1 contains nl objects, Box 2 contains n2 objects, ... , Box k contains nk objects equals n! · If the boxes are not labeled, and nl = n2 = ... = nk, then the number of partitions equals n!

How many eight-letter words can be constructed by using the 26 letters of the alphabet if each word contains three, four, or five vowels? It is understood that there is no restriction on the number of times a letter can be used in a word. We count the number of words according to the number of vowels they contain and then use the addition principle. First, consider words with three vowels. The three positions occupied by the vowels can be chosen in ( ~ ) ways; the other five positions are occupied b; consonants.
