Multiplication Principle In general, if there are p experiments and the first has N1 possible outcomes, the second N2, …, and the p th Np possible outcomes, then there are a total of N1 × N2 Np possible outcomes for the p experiments. Example: A DNA molecule is a sequence of four types of nucleotides, denoted by A; G;C and T. For a molecule 1 million (10^6) units long, how many different possible sequences?

Permutation In general, there are n! ways to fill in n positions with n different objects, where n! = n × (n - 1) ... 2 1; 0! = 1. Definition: Each of the n! arrangements of n different objects is called a permutation of the n objects. Example: Suppose that 3 positions are to be filled with 3 different objects (O1,O2,O3). How many possible arrangements are there?

Example There are 5 seats in a classroom and 3 students registered for the class. How many seating arrangements do we have? Using Multiplication rule: E1: S1 has 5 choices , E2: S2 has 4 choices, E3: S3 has 3 choices # of arrangements for composite events E1E2E3 is:
