Fundamental counting principleDon’t forget it!!!

• How many different cell phone can we make?

• They come in black, silver, and blue.

• They can be touch screen or not.

• They can have a full keypad or just a number pad.

• An arrangement, or listing, of objects in which order is important

• Permutation… think: Position!

• Examples?

• Math, science, and Language arts.

• The classes cannot repeat.

• First: there are 3 possibilities for the first class, There are 2 choices that remain for the second class, and there is only one choice left for the last class, because the classes cannot repeat.

• So….. 3*2*1= 6 total possibilities for the 3 classes to be arranged.

• How many different class schedules can we make?

• Math, Science, SS, Language Arts, Reading

• What is the probability that they will be in the order I typed them?

• There are 30 people in a race. How many ways can 3 people come in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd?

• How may different 3 digit codes can we make if no digits can repeat?

• What is the probability that the code is to punch in 1, 2, and then 3?
