EXAMPLE 5 Find permutations of n objects taken r at a time Music You are burning a demo CD for your band. Your band has 12 songs stored on your computer. However, you want to put only 4 songs on the demo CD. In how many orders can you burn 4 of the 12 songs onto the CD? SOLUTION Find the number of permutations of 12 objects taken 4 at a time. ( 12 – 4 )! 12 P 4 = 12! = 11,800= 12! 8! 479,001,600 40320 = ANSWER You can burn 4 of the 12 songs in 11,880 different orders.
