17.1 Permutations An r -permutation of a set A is an ordered arrangement of r elements from A . If | A | = n , the number of r -permutations of A is P ( n,r ) = n ( r ) = n ( n - 1) ··· ( n - r + 1) . Examples A ballroom dancing party. Bus. Chess. March 8 Permutations and combinations, Page 2

17.2 Combinations A r -combination of a set A is a subset of A of r elements. If | A | = n , the number of r -combinations is C ( n,r ) = ± n r ² = P ( n,r ) /r ! = n ! r !( n - r )! . Examples Football team. How many outcome sequences of tossing n coins contain precisely m heads? Contains precisely m heads and they occur consecutively? March 8 Permutations and combinations, Page 3
