Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!hi there, i have a problem, i cant answer this question to save myself! #2 20050829 21:39:18
Re: Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!This is covered under the subject of "Permutations" ... a Permutation is like an ordinary combination but where the order matters "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."

Re: Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!thank you so much, thats really helpful!! i will definately be using this sight again if i have a conundrum!! A+++++!!! #4 20050928 23:45:54
Re: Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!You just need to be careful if you're given a word with repeated letters, like 'deeded'. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20060115 05:25:41

Re: Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!I don't think that's right. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #8 20060115 22:05:06

Re: Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!Ah, reading again the M.ANAND KUMAR post I understand that he wanted to use any digit in his 8 digits phone number. Sorry, I was wrong, I thought that the 8 digits are constant. Your answer is correct.

Re: Please Help Me With A Permutation Question!!!That's my biggest pet peeve ever. Reading a question (especially math!) wrong. I absolutely hate when I do it. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
