The word CARLETON have 8 letters. We want to arranged this word so that it contains either CA of AC as sub-words.
The letters C and A can be grouped and considered as a single letter. that is, (CA)RLETON.
Hence we can assume total letters as 1+6=7 and all are different. Number of ways to arrange these letters is 7!=5040. Now, CA or AC can be arranged themselves in 2!=2ways, Therefore, the total number of arrangements is 5040×2=10080
Thus, the total number of arranged so that the word contains either CA or AC as sub-words are 10080.
