As many as I had!

More than I will ever own!!! but I'm going with 720.

If it was the one hired man I had he would have been lucky to get one :lol: :wink:

Gee thanks a lot! Now my head hurts!

Oodles and bunches?

Oodles and bunches?

Would the answer be 2997 ?

There are 10 numbers and 26 letters or a possibility of 36 different characters in each position.

Therefore 36 x 36 x 36 is 46,656.

At least a full day of branding, right.

Thiis would, of course assume the characters are right side up

and in one place on the cattle.

If you allow the characters to be oriented in four ways, you would

get 144 x 144 x 144 or 2,985,984. If there are 10 places to brand a critter, you would get 29,859,840.

If you really want to get precise, adjust the numbers downward for zeros and o's which look the same any which way.

I'm not going to figure that one out.

So maybe all of the cattle n the US?

The ranch started operations in 1885 and

According to the XIT Ranch museum website, it covered portions of ten counties which apparently helped perpetuate the misbelief that the brand -XIT- stands for "Ten In Texas". The brand, in fact, was originated to thwart rustlers.

THE ANSWER WOULD BE 666,666 SQUARED OR

444,443,555,556 WITH OUT USING SAME BRAND OVER AGAIN

BUT IF YOU CAN USE OVER AGAIN..Infinite NUMBER

The guy who asked this question is conspicuous by his silence . . . :???:

Here you can only use at the most 3 characters, and no fewer than 2.

I would assume the question asked us to pick 3 numbers and 3 letters and figure out the maximum number of combinations using those 6 characters.

Here you can't turn all letters backwards, and all letters can't be lazy or upside down. All numbers must maintain their natural position. So letters can hang, some can't. Only some letters can be combined with another letter.

Location is not a factor, I dont care if you brand a cow with one letter or number in six places as long as she gets 3 letters and 3 numbers.

good luck
