What do you mean?

How many sequences can you arrange them into?

If so, then we see that there are 11! ways of arranging them, since no number is repeated.

Or do you mean how **each** number can be arranged?

23 = 2 arrangements

543 = 6 arrangements

34 = 2 arrangements

135 = 6 arrangements

53 = 2 arrangements

345 = 6 arrangements

24 = 2 arrangements

576 = 6 arrangements

98 = 2 arrangements

69 = 2 arrangements

56 = 2 arrangements

Please explain what you mean.

Is the order relevant (eg. if it follows an n[sup]th[/sup] term)?
