a. How many usernames are possible if they are not case sensitive?

b. How many passwords are possible if they are not case sensitive?

c. How many usernames are possible if they are case sensitive?

d. How many passwords are possible if they are case sensitive?

#### Homework Answers

Answer #2

Number of alphabetical characters = 26

Number of numerical characters = 10

Number of alphanumeric character options if not case sensitive = 26 + 10 = 36

Number of alphanumeric character options if case sensitive = 26x2 + 10 = 62

a. Number of usernames possible, not case sensitive = 369

= 1.016x1014

b. Number of passwords possible, not case sensitive = 26 x 364 x 10

= 4.367x108

c. Number of usernames possible, case sensitive = 629

= 1.354x1016

b. Number of passwords possible, case sensitive = 52 x 624 x 10

= 7.684x109
