8 Permutations revisited • Write a method permute that accepts a string as a parameter and outputs all possible rearrangements of the letters in that string. The arrangements may be output in any order. – Example: permute("MARTY") outputs the following sequence of lines: YMTAR YMTRA YAMRT YAMTR YARMT YARTM YATMR YATRM YRMAT YRMTA YRAMT YRATM YRTMA YRTAM YTMAR YTMRA YTAMR YTARM YTRMA YTRAM TARMY TARYM TAYMR TAYRM TRMAY TRMYA TRAMY TRAYM TRYMA TRYAM TYMAR TYMRA TYAMR TYARM TYRMA TYRAM YMART YMATR YMRAT YMRTA RTMAY RTMYA RTAMY RTAYM RTYMA RTYAM RYMAT RYMTA RYAMT RYATM RYTMA RYTAM TMARY TMAYR TMRAY TMRYA TMYAR TMYRA TAMRY TAMYR ATYMR ATYRM AYMRT AYMTR AYRMT AYRTM AYTMR AYTRM RMATY RMAYT RMTAY RMTYA RMYAT RMYTA RAMTY RAMYT RATMY RATYM RAYMT RAYTM MYRAT MYRTA MYTAR MYTRA AMRTY AMRYT AMTRY AMTYR AMYRT AMYTR ARMTY ARMYT ARTMY ARTYM ARYMT ARYTM ATMRY ATMYR ATRMY ATRYM MARTY MARYT MATRY MATYR MAYRT MAYTR MRATY MRAYT MRTAY MRTYA MRYAT MRYTA MTARY MTAYR MTRAY MTRYA MTYAR MTYRA MYART MYATR

9 Exercise solution // Outputs all permutations of the given string. public static void permute(String s) { permute(s, ""); } private static void permute(String s, String chosen) { if (s.length() == 0) { // base case: no choices left to be made System.out.println(chosen); } else { // recursive case: choose each possible next letter for (int i = 0; i < s.length(); i++) { char c = s.charAt(i); // choose

11 Exercise: Combinations • Write a method combinations that accepts a string s and an integer k as parameters and outputs all possible k -letter words that can be formed from unique letters in that string.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
