1 Basic Probability Permutations and Combinations: - Combinations: - The number of different packages of data taken r at time from a data set containing n items The order of items is from a data set containing n items. The order of items is inconsequential. The number of taken r at a time (r n) is written n C r r! r n n! C r n )!
