Exploration - Permutation Suppose that a manager of a softball team is filling out her team’s lineup card before the game, the order in which the names are filled out is important as it determines the order which the players will bat. Suppose that she has 7 possible players in mind for the top 4 spots in the lineup. How many different ways can the manager fill in the line up?
