[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Look at this hint: the letters 'A' and 'C' appear with the same frequency, which is less than the frequency of letter 'B'. Use this to work out the possible number of times each letter could appear.

Hint Two
    Continuing on from hint one...
    The frequency of the letters could be as follows:
    A: 0, B: 6, C: 0
    or
    A: 1, B: 4, C: 1

Hint Three
    We know from the memo that there are no letters that are unused, so that means the frequency of the letters is A: 1, B: 4, C: 1. Now you need to put the letters together in pairs.

Super Hint
    Putting the letters in pairs gives us three groups: BB, BB and CA. Now you just need to put them in an order that avoids having three or more of the same letter in a row, and you have your password.
