Letters in the word UNIVERSITY:  E, I,N,R,S,T,U,V,Y

There are 9 distinct letters.   Let us say that each letter is used only once in formation of words of any length.    Let P(m, n) denote the number of permutations of selecting n items from m, ie., m! / (m-n)!

1. Number of 9 letter words:
      If all 9 letters are to be used:    9 !

2.  If words contain  0 to 9 letters:  Sum P(9, n)  with n denoting the number of letters to be present in the word.

         P(9,0) + P(9,1)+ P(9,2) + P(9,3) +.... + P(9,8) + P(9,9)
       (1) + (9) + (9*8)  + (9*8*7) + (9*8*7*6) +.....(9!/3!) + (9! /2! )+ (9!/1!) + 9!
please calculated the sum.

If you are looking for formation of 8 letter words:  P(9,8) = 9!/1! = 9!
