Hi, I have the following question:

"How many more sequence variations are possible for a nine nucleotide long DNA sequence than for a six nucleotide long sequence"

Can someone please help me with this?

From the mathematical point of view , it should be as following:

For 9 nucleotides :
9!

for 6 nucleotides
6!

!-factorial


But if we think about it from the point of protein synthesis (triplets) it's gonna be something like

9 nucleotides : 9*8*7
6 nucleotides : 6*5*4
