Answer:20 unique words

Step-by-step explanation:mommy is a 5 letter word. So initially we would think there are 5! = 120 words to spell from here. however, If we are looking for unique solutions, we need to consider that there are 3 m’s. the multinomial theorem says that we should divide by each group of duplicates so 5!/(3!1!1!) = 5!/3! = 20 unique words
