If you want ONLY distinct permutations, then you can have:

5! / 3! . 2! =10 distinct permutations as follows:

{2, 2, 2, 9, 9} | {2, 2, 9, 2, 9} | {2, 2, 9, 9, 2} | {2, 9, 2, 2, 9} | {2, 9, 2, 9, 2} | {2, 9, 9, 2, 2} | {9, 2, 2, 2, 9} | {9, 2, 2, 9, 2} | {9, 2, 9, 2, 2} | {9, 9, 2, 2, 2} (total: 10)

We have the numbers 2,2,2,9,9

Possibilities with 2: 2,2,2,9,9

2,2,9,2,9, 2,2,9,9,2, 2,9,2,2,9, 2,9,2,9,2, 2,9,9,2,2

We have only four possibilties, because we have only two 9's.

Thus, the answer is \(6+4=\boxed{10}\)
