A homework question I've done myself. Some things to think about though: How many bases code for 1 amino acid? How many ways can these 'groups of bases' be ordered and how many amino acids are there... The answer will be in the text book though, just giving some suggestions.

Look up 'codon' and 'intron' in your text book
