Combinations, Permutations, and Elementary Probability

1 Combinations, Permutations, and Elementary Probability Roughly speaking, Permutations are ways of grouping things where the order is important. Combinations are ways of grouping things where the order is not important.

Permutations

Math 103A - Winter,2001 Professor John J Wavrik Permutations A permutation of {1, …, n } is a 1-1, onto mapping of the set to itself. Most books initially use a bulky notation to describe a permutation: The numbers 1..n are put on one row and the images of these elements under the permutation ...

CHAPTER 5: PROBABILITY, COMBINATIONS & PERMUTATIONS

© Roger Nix (Queen Mary, University of London) - 5.1 CHAPTER 5: PROBABILITY, COMBINATIONS & PERMUTATIONS Probability If an event can occur in n ways (i.e. there are n possible outcomes) and a particular result can occur in m ways, then the probability of the particular result occurring is m / n .
