A method for counting outcomes of multi-stage processes If you want to perform a series of tasks and the first task can be done in (a) ways, the second can be done in (b) ways, the third can be done in (c) ways, and so on, then all the tasks can be done in a x b x c…ways

A group of objects in which the ordering of the objects within the group makes a difference. If we select (r) different objects from a set of (n) objects and arrange them in a straight line, this is called a permutation of n objects The number of permutations of (n) objects taken (r) at a time is denoted p(n,r) Formula: nPr = Application: Stud Poker, Rankings, Committees with assignments

How many Permutations are there of the letters a,b,c,d?

How many Permutations are there of the letters a, b, c, d, e, f and g if we take the letters three at a time?

A group of objects in which the order of the objects is irrelevant When choosing (r) objects from a set of (n) objects, we say that we are forming a combination of (n) objects (r) at a time. Noted: c(n, r) Formula: Applications: Draw Poker hands, lottery tickets, Coalitions, subsets.

How many 3 –element sets can be chosen from a set of five objects?

How many four person committees can be formed from a set of ten people?

A group of people intend to raise \$15 million to buy all the ticket combinations for certain lotteries.
