Permutations and CombinationsReminder: When the order is important we use permutationsFormula for r permutations from n: nPr = n (n-1) (n-2) (n-3)...(n-r+1)Example 7 P 5 = 7 (7 -1) (7 -2 ) (7-3) (7 - 4) [ note that -r + 1= -5 + 1 = -4 so we stop at (7- 4)]and nPn = n!When the order is not important we use combinationsFormula for r permutations from n:nCr = [n (n-1) (n-2) (n-3)...(n-r+1)] / r!Example 10 C 4 = 10 (10 -1) (10 -2 ) (10-3)/ 4! [ note that -r + 1= -4 + 1 = -3 so we stop at (10- 3)]Answer each of the following questions. Show al
