# 3 words out of order took me 1.8 trillion guesses. Does anybody know how to calculate 4 and 5 words out of order?

I am using btc recover to recover my wallet. It’s a 12 word phrase. I remember 9-10 words but out of order. I remember the order of 1 and 2. What is the best technique to run by recover in this case? And I know my wallet address

• If you have the three words, there are only 6 different orders they can appear in. So I’m a bit confused by your statement. Could you perhaps elaborate a bit what you are asking about?

• Ah, so you had the order of 9 words, but didn’t know the order or position of the other three?

• No. I wish. I don’t remember most of order and probably 2 or 3 words wrong. Commented Jul 23 at 20:55
