Example: Choose three letters from {A, B, C, D} Combination Permutations {A, B, C} (A,B,C),(A,C,B),(B,A,C),(B,C,A),(C,A,B),(C,B,A) {A, B, D} (A,B,D),(A,D,B),(D,A,B),(D,B,A),(B,A,D),(B,D,A) {A, C, D} (A,C,D),(A,D,C),(C,A,D),(C,D,A),(D,A,C),(D,C,A) {B, C, D} (B,C,D),(B,D,C),(C,B,D),(C,D,B),(D,B,C),(D,C,B) ( 29 24 1 24 ! 3 4 ! 4 3 4 = = - = P 4 6 24 ! 3 3 4 3 4 = = = P C ( 29 ! ! ! ! r n r n r P C r n r n - = =
