MDM 4U: Mathematics of Data Management

Unit: Counting and Probability

By: Mr. Allison and Mr. Panchbhaya

Permutations and Combinations


Specific Expectations

  • Strand 2.1

  • Recognize the use of permutations and combinations as counting techniques with advantages over other counting techniques

  • Strand 2.2

  • Solve simple problems using techniques for counting permutations and combinations, where all objects are distinct

Learning Goals

  • Make connections between, and learn to calculate various permutations and combinations

  • Learn to behave in class


Agenda of the Day

  • Probability Video

  • Review

  • Worksheet

  • Game show Activity


How many combinations would it take for the tire to attach itself back to the car?


Real Life Examples

  • Video game designers

    • to assign appropriate scoring values

  • Engineering

    • new products tested rigorously to determine how well they work

  • Allotting numbers for:

    • Credit card numbers

    • Cell phone numbers

    • Car plate numbers

    • Lottery


Factorials

  • The product of all positive integers less than equal or equal to n

    n! = n x (n – 1) x (n – 2) x … x 2 x 1

    5! =5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120


Permutations

  • Ordered arrangement of objects selected from a set

  • Ordered arrangement containing a identical objects of one kind is


Combinations

  • Collection of chosen objects for which order does not matter


Speed Round: The sports apparel store at the mall is having a sale. Each customer may choose exactly two items from the list, and purchase them both. The trick is that each 2-item special must have two different items (for example, they may not purchase two T-shirts at the same time). What are all the different combinations that can be made by choosing exactly two items?


15 combinations are possible


Q – How many combinations are made if you were purchasingthree items instead of two?


1. A club of 15 members choose a president, a secretary, and a treasurer in

  • 455 ways

  • 6 ways

  • 2730 ways


2. The number of debate teams formed of 6 students out of 10 is:

3. A student has to answer 6 questions out of 12 in an exam. The first two questions are obligatory. The student has:

  • 5040

  • 210

  • 720


4. From a group of 7 men and 6 women, five persons are to be selected to form a committee so that at least 3 men are there on the committee. In how many ways can it be done.

  • 564

  • 645

  • 735

  • 756

  • None of the above


5. In how many different ways can the letters of the word “LEADING” be arranged in such a way that the vowels

  • 360

  • 480

  • 720

  • 5040

  • None of the above


6. How many permutations of 4 different letters are there, chosen from the twenty six letters of the alphabet (repetition is not allowed)?


Answer

The number of permutations of 4 digits chosen from 26 is 26P4 = 26 × 25 × 24 × 23 = 358,800


How many paths are there to the top of the board?


Answer


How many 4 digit numbers can be made using 0-7 with no repeated digits allowed?

  • 5040

  • 4536

  • 2688

  • 1470


Answer

  • = 7x7x6x5 = 1470

  • First digit of a number can not be ‘0’


No postal code in Canada can begin with the letters D,F,I,O,Q,U, but repeated letters are allowed and any digit is allowed. How many postal codes are possible in Canada?

  • 11,657,890

  • 13,520,000

  • 14,280,000

  • 12,240,000


Answer

  • = 20x10x26x10x26x10 = 13,520,000

  • 20 choices for the first letter (26 - 6 that cannot be chosen. 10 choices for the digit (0-9).

  • 26 choices for the 3 position (2nd letter)

  • then 10 choice for the 4th position

  • Then 26 and 10 since you can again repeat numbers and letters.


Using digits 0 – 9, how many 4 digit numbers are evenly divisible by 5 with repeated digits allowed?

  • 1400

  • 1600

  • 1800

  • 1500


Answer

  • 9 × 10 × 10 × 2 = 1800

  • First # can’t be ‘0’

  • Last # has to be ‘5’ or ‘0’
