Abstract

This short article was prompted by the formula for Prob(N) in Michael Keith's "What are the odds that X is an anagram of Y?" in Word Ways, August 2000. It seemed to me that multiplying the values of that function by the square of the number of words of a given length might be expected to give an estimate of the number of words of a given length that are permutations of another word.
