We won;ty do your homework for you but we can offer hints.

The assignment tells you that

1 letter = 26
2 letters = 26*26
so we can extend that
3 letters = 26*26*26
So
6 letters = 26*26*26*26*26*26

All you need to do is calculate that using Python.
If you need more help let us know what exactly puzzles you.
