Trey and Miles are correct — we can either use the reasoning “we do not want for the two letters to be the same, so for the first letter we have 26 choices and for the second we have 25”, so we get 26-25, or we can find the number of all two-letter codes, which we have 26-26, and subtract the number of two-letter codes with a repeated letter, which we have 26.
Adding 26 and 25 makes no sense, since for each choice of the first letter we have 2% additional codes.

Substitution and elimination, and matrix methods such as the Gauss-Jordan method and Cramer's rule. Use each method at least once when solving the systems below. include solutions with nonreal complex number components. For systems with infinitely many solutions, write the solution set using an arbitrary variable.
