1. Order is important, so we use permutations. Since there are no repeated letters, the answer is simply 7P4 = 840
2. 10C2 * 12C3 = 45 * 220 = 9900
3. Assuming every person gets exactly one sundae. We simply need to find the permutation of the 9 sundaes. Normally this is 9!, but with repeats, we need to divide out the indistinguishable permutations of the 3, 4 and 2 identical sundaes. The answer is thus:
9! / (3!4!2!) = 1260
4. 26 * 26 * 10 * 10 * 10 = 676000
