How many words can you spell with letter grades?

Postby gbagcn2 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 10:51 pm UTC

Using A, B, C, D, and F how many words can you spell? Also since some schools use E and U how many more words can you spell if you use those 2 as well?

Using just ABCDEF and U. Hmm... I'm assuming there is no reusing of letters?

FACE
DEAF
ACE
FED
FADE


That's all i can come up with, but i am a bit frazzled at the moment.

With just ABCDF, I can think of a, ab, ad, add, baa, bad, cab, cad, dab, dad, fab, and fad.

Why is it that 4chan is either infinitely awesome, infinitely bad, or "lolwut", but never any intermediary level?

I now occasionally update my rarely-updated blog.

I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

One school now uses H's rather than F's so:
