### Text of The Fundamental Counting Principle & Permutations

• THE FUNDAMENTAL COUNTING PRINCIPLE & PERMUTATIONS

• THE FUNDAMENTAL COUNTING PRINCIPLE & PERMUTATIONS ESSENTIAL QUESTIONHow is the counting principleapplied to determine outcomes?

• THE FUNDAMENTAL COUNTING PRINCIPLEIf you have 2 events: 1 event can occur m ways and another event can occur n ways, then the number of ways that both can occur is m*nEvent 1 = 4 types of meatsEvent 2 = 3 types of bread

How many diff types of sandwiches can you make? 4*3 = 12

• 3 OR MORE EVENTS:3 events can occur m, n, & p ways, then the number of ways all three can occur is m*n*p 4 meats3 cheeses3 breadsHow many different sandwiches can you make?

4*3*3 = 36 sandwiches

• At a restaurant at Cedar Point, you have the choice of 8 different entrees, 2 different salads, 12 different drinks, & 6 different deserts.How many different dinners (one choice of each) can you choose?

8*2*12*6=

1152 different dinners

• FUNDAMENTAL COUNTING PRINCIPLE WITH REPETITIONOhio Licenses plates have 3 #s followed by 3 letters.1. How many different licenses plates are possible if digits and letters can be repeated?There are 10 choices for digits and 26 choices for letters.10*10*10*26*26*26= 17,576,000 different plates

• HOW MANY PLATES ARE POSSIBLE IF DIGITS AND NUMBERS CANNOT BE REPEATED?There are still 10 choices for the 1st digit but only 9 choices for the 2nd, and 8 for the 3rd.For the letters, there are 26 for the first, but only 25 for the 2nd and 24 for the 3rd.10*9*8*26*25*24= 11,232,000 plates

• PHONE NUMBERSHow many different 7 digit phone numbers are possible if the 1st digit cannot be a 0 or 1?

8*10*10*10*10*10*10=

8,000,000 different numbers

• TESTINGA multiple choice test has 10 questions with 4 answers each. How many ways can you complete the test?4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4 = 410 =

• USING PERMUTATIONSAn ordering of n objects is a permutation of the objects.

• THERE ARE 6 PERMUTATIONS OF THE LETTERS A, B, &C ABCACBBACBCACABCBAYou can use the Fundamental Counting Principle to determine the number of permutations of n objects.Like this ABC.There are 3 choices for 1st #2 choices for 2nd #1 choice for 3rd.3*2*1 = 6 ways to arrange the letters

• IN GENERAL, THE # OF PERMUTATIONS OF N OBJECTS IS:n! = n*(n-1)*(n-2)*

• 12 SKIERSHow many different ways can 12 skiers in the Olympic finals finish the competition? (if there are no ties) 12! = 12*11*10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 = 479,001,600 different ways

• FACTORIAL WITH A CALCULATOR:Hit math then over, over, over.Option 4

• BACK TO THE FINALS IN THE OLYMPIC SKIING COMPETITIONHow many different ways can 3 of the skiers finish 1st, 2nd, & 3rd (gold, silver, bronze)Any of the 12 skiers can finish 1st, the any of the remaining 11 can finish 2nd, and any of the remaining 10 can finish 3rd.So the number of ways the skiers can win the medals is12*11*10 = 1320

• PERMUTATION OF N OBJECTS TAKEN R AT A TIMEnPr =

• BACK TO THE LAST PROBLEM WITH THE SKIERSIt can be set up as the number of permutations of 12 objects taken 3 at a time.12P3 = 12! = 12! =(12-3)!9! 12*11*10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 = 9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*112*11*10 = 1320

• 10 COLLEGES, YOU WANT TO VISIT ALL OR SOMEHow many ways can you visit6 of them:Permutation of 10 objects taken 6 at a time:10P6 = 10!/(10-6)! = 10!/4! =

3,628,800/24 = 151,200

• HOW MANY WAYS CAN YOU VISIT ALL 10 OF THEM:

10P10 = 10!/(10-10)! = 10!/0!=10! = ( 0! By definition = 1)
