Must it be "UA", or is "AU" acceptable as well ???

The same for "UAR", or are other perumations allowed such as "AUR", "RUA"......etc.??

1.

Consider  "UA"  to be a single entity

Can  put these in any one of 5 positions    12, 23, 34, 45, 56

And for each of these, there are 4!  ways to arrange the other letters

But....we can also write UA  as AU

So.....the number of total "words"  is

2 ways to arrange UA  x  5 positons  x 4! arrangements of the other letters

2   x  5  x  4!   =

2 x  5  x  24  =

240  "words"

2.

Similarly, for   UAR,  consider this as a single entity

It can appear in  4 different positions    123    234    345    456

And for each of these, the other letters can be arranged in 3! ways

But....UAR  can also be arranged in 3!  ways

So....the total possible "words"   =

4  x  3!  x 3!  =

4 x 6 x 6  =

144  "words"
