Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"Hi MIF;
Yes, it takes some time on mine too. It seems to be working fine for smaller ones. 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. #29 20120831 08:10:39

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"
What did you enter as an input (which letters) that gave the slow output?

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules""m,a,t,h,e,m,a,t,i,c,s"? I get the results pretty fast for that one.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"I didn't. I counted the number of permutations. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"What permutations?

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"The problem in post #17 is a permutation. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"When you choose a number of objects out of a larger set of objects, those can be only combinations or variations, not permutations.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"Did you look at post #17? When order counts we are talking about a permutation. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"No, when order counts, it is a variation.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"Just because he calls it that, doesn't mean it should be called that way.

Re: Combinations and Permutations "Rules"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permutatio … binatorics
Well of course you can not if you call it a variation. There are ogf's for combinations and egf's for permutations. 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.
