thank you for your answer giddi77!

I can understand your reasoning except from this part:

"Words with 2 letetrs repeated:

2Rs: 2R's,1F or 2R's,1T = 3*2 =6

Similarly for 2Fs = 6 "

You covered 2Rs and 2Fs but where are the 2Ts ?

Oops! I somehow assumed that there is only 1 T:

Infact for the 2T's there will be 6 more combinations:

2T's,1F or 2T's,1R

2T's,1F = 3!/2! (3 combinations in where 2 letters are repeated) = 3

2T's,1R = 3!/2! = 3

So final answer = 1 + 6 + 6*3 = 25!

What you are missing in your list are single letter combinations:

RTF

RFT

TRF

TFR

FTR

FRT

So the total would be 25! HTH.
