Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"You can see there that a permutations of n elements always contains n elements, and not less. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #52 20120901 00:53:40
Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"
k can be less than n. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #53 20120901 00:59:21
Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"If you can use detergents to clean dishes and to clean your hands, are the two the same thing?

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"Hmmm... I use Boraxo, 20 mule team of course. Truthfully, I have never heard that term and do not consider it correct. You know how I feel about jargon. If you need authoritative evidence in addition to the two links provided just let me say that I am considered to be the best combinatoricist on my block. True it is a small block just 4 buildings but still... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
