Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, you have nineelement set and its cardinality n is equal to 9. You have to choose 6 elements from it. Because order of choosing doesn't have meaning, we can say that you have to compute how many subsets with cardinality 6 you can distinguish. This can be done with this formula: \[9! \over 6!(9  6)!\]. The result is 84
