Re: Combination Permutation

Hi Agnishom;

I would use mathematica to print the files in theory. In reality, I would never do such a thing. Why? Because there is almost always a better way than looking at all the permutations.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Combination Permutation

I understand that but what is Mathematica?

Hi Agnishom;

Mathematica is a program that does mathematics. You will be exposed to it when you get to college and certainly when you find a job.

Re: Combination Permutation

Hmmm...
I asked my father and he said that it is used to solve problems like differential equations.

Hi Agnishom;

That and many, many more things.
