Hi, i don’t understand what the question is asking of us, combinations of amino acids?

How do we find 6?

Hi, i don’t understand what the question is asking of us, combinations of amino acids?

How do we find 6?

hello!

I also got confused for a second but I would guess we solve it by finding the factorial of the number of bases we have. we have 3 different bases so 3!= 3*2*1= 6

correct me if you find a better explanation <3

hi i agree with you, if the bases are A, B and C they can be arranged as ABC ACB BCA BAC CAB CBA so six combinations

but the wording is very unclear!

I totally agree! I think the wording might be confusing because it is translated from Italian. by the way, if possible, could you share the translated versions of the tolc med with me? or is there anywhere I can find them? thanks
