If the permutations of the first 5 letters, a, b, c, d, e, are arranged in alphabetical order from the beginning to the end, then what is the alphabetical order of the 77th term? How about the 100th term?

Thank you for any help.

If the permutations of the first 5 letters, a, b, c, d, e,

are arranged in alphabetical order from the beginning to the end,

then what is the alphabetical order of the 77th term? How about the 100th term?
