Warm up!

- Christian is going to dinner at Olive Garden. He is allowed to choose one of four pastas, one of three sauces, and one of three meats. How many different pasta dished could Christian make?
- 2. How would the number of combinations change if they were out of one of the sauces?

4. The student council of 32 members must choose a president, a vice president, a secretary, and a treasurer. How many combinations of officers could there be?

Let’s say there are 15 student council members named: Bruce, Shareeka, Yasmine, Jalen, Greg, Stephon, Mikey, Bria, Joseph, Ekure, Anthony, Ar-Keno, Brittany, Tiffany, and Amber. If Shareeka, Tiffany, Yasmine, and Bruce are elected, would the order in which they are chosen matter?

IS…

PresidentVice PresidentSecretaryTreasurer

ShareekaTiffany Yasmine Bruce

the same as…

BruceYasmineTiffanyShareeka?

Although the same individual students are listed in each example above, the listings are not the same. Each listing indicates a different student holding each office. Therefore we must conclude that the order in which they are chosen matters.

Permutation

Notation

Permutation

When deciding who goes 1st, 2nd, etc., order is important.

A permutationis an arrangement or listing of objects in a specific order.

The order of the arrangement is very important!!

The notation for a permutation: n Pr = n is the total number of objects r is the number of objects selected (wanted)

*Note if n = r then n Pr = n !

Permutations

Simplify each expression.

a. 12P2

b. 10P4

c. At a school science fair, ribbons are given for first, second, third, and fourth place, There are 20 exhibits in the fair. How many different arrangements of four winning exhibits are possible?

12 • 11 = 132

10 • 9 • 8 • 7 = 5,040

= 20P4 = 20 • 19 • 18 • 17 = 116,280

- The number of r-combinations of a set with n elements,
- where n is a positive integer and
- r is a positive integer less thann,
- i.e. the number of combinations of r objects from n unlike objects is

How many different ways are there to select two class representatives from a class of 20 students?

- The answer is given by the number of 2-combinations of a set with 20 elements.
- The number of such combinations is

From a class of 24, Mrs. Shaffer is randomly selecting 3 to help Mrs. Benson with a project. How many combinations are possible?

For your school pictures, you can choose 4 backgrounds from a list of 10. How many combinations of backdrops are possible?

Coach Lynch randomly selects 3 people out of his class of 20 to go help him get ready for a lacrosse match. How many possibilities of people does he have?

combinations

permutations

Both are counting principles that tell you the total number of possible outcomes

"The combination to the safe is 472".

"My fruit salad is a combination of apples, grapes and bananas"

the order DOES matter

the order doesn't matter

A Permutation is an ordered Combination.

- "My fruit salad is a combination of apples, grapes and bananas"
We don't care what order the fruits are in, they could also be "bananas, grapes and apples" or "grapes, apples and bananas", its the same fruit salad.

- "The combination to the safe was 472".
Now we do care about the order. "724" would not work, nor would "247". It has to be exactly 4-7-2.

- If the order doesn't matter, it is a Combination.
- If the order does matter it is a Permutation.
A Permutation is an ordered Combination.
