1. In how many ways can the letters of the word BANANA be rearranged such that the new word does not begin with a B?

1 -  The word B, A, N, A, N, A =6! / 3!.2! =60 permutations. Since each permutations begins with one of the 6 letters, or 60 / 6 = 10 permutations for each letter. Therefore, you will have 60 - 10 =50 permutations without the letter "B" at the beginning of the permutations.
