Question

- For a certain computer program a password must be exactly 5
characters long. The first character can be any lowercase letter,
the second must be an uppercase letter, the third character must be
a number from 0 – 9, the fourth character can either be a lowercase
letter or a number 0 - 9, the fifth character has to be exactly the
same as the first character.
(6)
- How many possible passwords are there?

What is the probability of randomly guessing the password “dW9wd”?

Answer #1

Here,

In password there are tota 5 characters,

The first character can be lowercase letter,

There for there are 26 options for first character.

And the second character can be uppercase letter,

Therefore there are 26 possible options for second character.

The third character must be number from 0 -9

Therefore there are 10 possible option for third character.

And fourth character must be lowercase letter or number from 0-9

Therefore there are 36 possible option for fourth character.

And 5th character has exactly same as first

Hence there are only 1 possible option for 5th character.

Thus

Total possible passwords are

= 26*26*10*36*1

=243360

Thus total possible passwords are 243360.

Now

Probability of randomly guessing password "dW9wd" is,

=1/243360

=0.0000041

A computer system uses passwords that contain exactly 5
characters, and each character is 1 of the 3 lowercase letters (a,
b, c) or 3 upper case letters (A, B, C) or the 5 odd digits (1, 3,
5, 7, 9).. Let Ω denote the set of all possible passwords, and let
A and B denote the events that consist of passwords with only
letters or only integers, respectively. Determine the number of
passwords for A′∩ B′. Report the exact...

A company wants to impose a more secure password system for its
employees to use on the company’s network. The current policy
requires a minimum of seven characters. The system under
consideration requires a minimum of eight characters. The new
system will allow repetition of characters, but not doubling (e.g.,
the sequence 121 would be acceptable, but not 112).
For both password systems, assume the following:
Only alphanumeric characters can be used in the passwords,
without any spaces or symbols....

The AccessPlus system at ISU has the following policy for
creating a password:
-Passwords must be exactly 8 characters in length.
-Passwords must include at least one letter (a-z, A-Z) or
supported special character (@, #, $ only).
-All letters are case-sensitive.
-Passwords must include at least one number (0-9).
-Passwords cannot contain spaces or unsupported special
characters.
According to this policy, how many possible AccessPlus passwords
are available? (Round to the nearest
trillion)
