    There are 13 patients in Dr. Ziglar's waiting room. Dr. Ziglar can see 7 patients before lunch. In how many different orders can Dr. Ziglar see 7 of the patients before lunch? would I multiply every thing from 13 down to 7?

    Answer to the originally posted problem is not 120, but 60. Since you have two "s" you need to divide by to to get 60 DISTINGUISHABLE permutations
