Since there are 6 different letters, you have 6 choices for the first letter.

Now, since there are 5 letters remaining, you have 5 choices for the second letter.

Then, you have 4 choices for the third letter; 3 choices for the fourth letter; 2 choices for the fifth leetter; and only 1 choice for the sixth, and last letter.

Multiplying these choices together: 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 6! = 720 choices.
