Permutations and Combinations In how many ways can you line up 3 students chosen from 7 students for a photograph? PRE-ALGEBRA LESSON 12-6 7 students Choose 3. 7 P 3 = 7 6 5 = 210Simplify You can line up 3 students from 7 in 210 ways. Quick Check 12-6

Permutations and Combinations In how many ways can you choose two states from the table when you write reports about the areas of states? PRE-ALGEBRA LESSON 12-6 State Area (mi 2 ) Alabama Colorado Maine Oregon Texas 50,750 103,729 30,865 96,003 261,914 Make an organized list of all the combinations. 12-6

Permutations and Combinations (continued) PRE-ALGEBRA LESSON 12-6 AL, CO AL, ME AL, OR AL, TXUse abbreviations of each CO, ME CO, OR CO, TXstate’s name. First, list all ME, OR ME, TXpairs containing Alabama. OR, TXContinue until every pair of states is listed. There are ten ways to choose two states from a list of five. Quick Check 12-6

Permutations and Combinations How many different pizzas can you make if you can choose exactly 5 toppings from 9 that are available?

Permutations and Combinations Tell which type of arrangement—permutations or combinations—each problem involves. Explain. PRE-ALGEBRA LESSON 12-6 a. How many different groups of three vegetables could you choose from six different vegetables? b. In how many different orders can you play 4 DVDs? Combinations; the order of the vegetables selected does not matter. Permutations; the order in which you play the DVDs matters. Quick Check 12-6

Permutations and Combinations PRE-ALGEBRA LESSON 12-6 Find the number of permutations or combinations. 1.Find the number of permutations of the last four digits in the phone number 555–1234. 2.In how many ways can you arrange six out of eight books on a shelf? 3.In how many ways can you choose three different items from a menu containing seven items?
