Counting Techniques: Permutations of Selected Elements Addition Rule, Difference Rule, Inclusion/Exclusion Rule

**Permutations of Selected Elements**

Typical situation: A chairman, a secretary and a treasurer are to be chosen in a committee of 7 people. Question: In how many different ways can it be done? Definition: An r-permutation of a set S of n elements is an ordered selection of r elements taken from S. The number of all r-permutations of a set of n elements is denoted P(n,r) . In the example above we want to find P(7,3).

**How to compute P(n,r) Theorem: P(n,r) = n(n-1)(n-2)…(n-r+1)**

or, equivalently, Proof: Forming an r-permutation of a set of n-elements is an r-step operation: Step 1: Choose the 1st element ( n different ways). Step 2: Choose the 2nd element ( n-1 different ways). … Step r: Choose the rth element (n-r+1 different ways). Based on the multiplication rule, the number of r-permutations is n∙(n-1)∙…∙(n-r+1) .

**Examples of r-permutations**

1. Choosing a chairman, a secretary and a treasurer among 7 people: P(7,3) = 7∙6∙5 = 210 . 2. Suppose Jim is already chosen to be the secretary. Q: How many ways a chairman and a treasurer can be chosen? A: P(6,2) = 6∙5 = 30 . 3. In an instance of the Traveling Salesman Problem, the total number of cities = 10; this time the salesman is supposed to visit only 4 cities (including the home city). Q: How many different tours are possible? A: P(9,3) = 9∙8∙7 = 504 .

5
**The Addition Rule Suppose a finite set A equals the union of**

k distinct mutually disjoint subsets A1, A2, …, Ak . Then n(A) = n(A1) + n(A2) + … + n(Ak) Example: How many integers from 1 through 999 do not have any repeated digits? Solution: Let A = integers from 1 to 999 not having repeated digits. Partition A into 3 sets: A1=one-digit integers not having repeated digits; A2=two-digit integers not having repeated digits; A3=three-digit integers not having repeated digits. Then n(A)=n(A1)+n(A2)+n(A3) (by the addition rule) = 9 + 9∙9 +9∙9∙8 = 738. (by the multipl. rule)

6
**The Difference Rule If A is a finite set and B is a subset of A,**

then n(A-B) = n(A) – n(B) . Example: Assume that any seven digits can be used to form a telephone number. Q: How many seven-digit phone numbers have at least one repeated digit? Let A = the set of all possible 7-digit phone numbers; B = the set of 7-digit numbers without repetition. Note that BA . Then A-B is the set of 7-digit numbers with repetition. n(A-B) = n(A) – n(B) (by the difference rule) = 107 – P(10,7) (by the multiplication rule) = 107 – 10! / 3! = 10,000,000 – 3,628,800/6 = = 10,000,000 – 604,800 = 9,395,200

7
**The Inclusion/Exclusion Rule for Two or Three Sets**

If A, B and C are finite sets then n(A B) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A B) n(A B C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) - n(A B) – n(A C) – n(B C) + n(A B C) A B A B C

8
**Example on Inclusion/Exclusion Rule (2 sets)**

Question: How many integers from 1 through 100 are multiples of 4 or multiples of 6 ? Solution: Let A=the set of integers from 1 through which are multiples of 4; B = the set of integers from 1 through 100 which are multiples of 6. Then we want to find n(A B). First note that A B is the set of integers from 1 through 100 which are multiples of 12 . n(A B) = n(A) + n(B) - n(A B) (by incl./excl. rule) = – 8 = 33 (by counting the elements of the three lists)

9
**Example on Inclusion/Exclusion Rule (3 sets)**

3 headache drugs – A,B, and C – were tested on 40 subjects. The results of tests: 23 reported relief from drug A; 18 reported relief from drug B; 31 reported relief from drug C; 11 reported relief from both drugs A and B; 19 reported relief from both drugs A and C; 14 reported relief from both drugs B and C; 37 reported relief from at least one of the drugs. Questions: 1) How many people got relief from none of the drugs? 2) How many people got relief from all 3 drugs? 3) How many people got relief from A only?

10
**Example on Inclusion/Exclusion Rule (3 sets)**

We are given: n(A)=23, n(B)=18, n(C)=31, n(A B)=11, n(A C)=19, n(B C)=14 , n(S)=40, n(A B C)=37 Q1) How many people got relief from none of the drugs? By difference rule, n((A B C)c ) = n(S) – n(A B C) = = 3 S A B C

11
**Example on Inclusion/Exclusion Rule (3 sets)**

Q2) How many people got relief from all 3 drugs? By inclusion/exclusion rule: n(A B C) = n(A B C) - n(A) - n(B) - n(C) + n(A B) + n(A C) + n(B C) = 37 – 23 – 18 – = 9 Q3) How many people got relief from A only? n(A – (B C)) (by inclusion/exclusion rule) = n(A) – n(A B) - n(A C) + n(A B C) = 23 – 11 – = 2
