**Combination Formula The number of combinations of n**

objects, taken r at a time(order is not important n r).

6
**Combination Rule How many ways can 3 cards be chosen**

from a standard deck of 52 cards, disregarding the order of the selection? 52 x 51 x 50 3 x 2 x 1 52 nCr 3 = = 22,100

7
Combination Rule If 20 people all shake hands with each other, how many handshakes are there? 20 x 19 2 20 nCr 2 = = 190 The Greek alphabet has 24 letters. In how many ways can 3 different Greek letters be selected if the order does not matter? 24 x 23 x 22 3 x 2 x 1 24 nCr 3 = = 2024

**Combination Rule A committee is to consist of 3 members. If there**

are 4 men and 6 women available to serve on this committee, find the following: a. How many different committees can be formed? b. How many committees can be formed if each committee must consist of 2 men and 1 woman? 10 x 9 x 8 3 x 2 x 1 10 nCr 3 = = 120 4 nCr 2 x 6 nCr 1 = 6 x 6 = 36

9
**8 nCr 3 + 8 nCr 4 + 8 nCr 5 + 8 nCr 6 + 8 nCr 7 + 8 nCr 8 =**

Combination Rule How many different committees can be formed from 8 people if each committee must consist of at least 3 people? 8 nCr nCr nCr nCr nCr nCr 8 = = 219
