Statistics/Probability(beginner): permutations and combinationsI'm having a hard time of understanding the meaning of those two and am also confused about which formula to use when given a problem related to those methods. What does it mean when it say things like "Order does not matter," or "No replacement"? #2 20120908 17:46:56

Re: Statistics/Probability(beginner): permutations and combinationsHi; 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. #7 20120910 15:05:14
