Hey there, I'm trying to count how many letter arrangements are possible by using the algorithm below (for Maple TA). It's a bit crude but the console tells me countcharacteroccurences second argument must be a string, but it works for the earlier letters. Can someone please give me a bit of guidance?

 

$temp = maple("
randomize();

DENOMINATOR,DIFFERENTIATE,DERIVATIVE,DIAMETER,DYNAMICS,EXTRAPOLATION,FACTORIALS,GEOMETRIC,
HYPOTENUSE,INTEGRATION,IRRATIONAL,INVERSE,ITERATION,POLYNOMIAL,COMBINATIONS,PERMUTATIONS,POLYGON;

disp := word[rintS()];
n := length(disp);

n1 := CountCharacterOccurrences(disp,A);
n2 := CountCharacterOccurrences(disp,B);
n3 := CountCharacterOccurrences(disp,C);
