Reasoning Use the definition of permutation to show why 0! should equal 1.

20. Circle the equation that shows the Fundamental Counting Principle and the Permutation Formula for n items arranged n at a time.

0! 5 n ! (n 2 0)!

n! 5 n! (n 2 n)!

n! 5 n ! (n 2 0)!

21. Simplify the equation you chose in 22. Underline the correct expressions to complete Exercise 20. the sentence.

For n!0! to equal 0! / n! , 0! must equal 0 / 1 .
