Combinations

When the order in which objects are chosen is not important, as it is in a permutation, the arrangement is called a combination. The combination of n things taken r at a time is written as C(n, r) or nC r . A formula for finding the number of combinations of n objects taken r at a time is given by the following:

Note that this is the same as the binomial coefficient formula.

A class has 16 students. How many groups consisting of four students can be formed?

There are 1820 different ways to form the groups.
