Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait im wrong.. hold up. You have to use that formula, like the number of ways of choosing some object from a set of objects with no repetitions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you explain what the question is asking? What does it mean when it says: 'take one, two, three and four digits from the digits 1, 2, 7 and 8'?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1im thinking: Pick one digit from 1,2,7 and 8. Like I can pick 1, or 2, or 7, or 8, so the answer's 4 ways

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One digit possibilities: 1, 2, 7 and 8. So there are 4 permutations for one digits...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21, 2, 7 and 8 1 digit numbers; there are only 4 numbers so: 4 2 digit number: 12 17 18; 4 times = 12; 4P1 * 3P1 = 12 3digit number: 127 128 172 178 182 187; 6*4 = 24; 4*3*2 = 24 4 digit numbers: 1278 1287 1728 1782 1827 1872: 6*4 = 24; 4*3*2*1 = 24 4+12+24+24 = 4+12(3) = 40 i beleive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not really; since it is split up into 4 groups to count individually you still have a bit of work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understood the formula before. But now, I just find it confusing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah, its just a "structured" way to count and if you dont use it you tend to go back to the basic method of 1,2,3,4,5s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see. I work it out intuitively now  probably takes me a bit longer, but i get there eventually.
