    ok look :o \[15!=15\times14\times13\times12\times11\times......\times1 \] and\[9!=\times8\times7\times6\times5\times...1 and 6!=6\times5\times4\times3\times2\times1\] so if you sub this in, we can easily simplify the equation \[(15\times14\times13\times12\times11\times10\times9!)\div(6!(9!))\] you can cancel out the 9! and be left w/\[(15\times14\times13\times12\times11\times10)\div(6!)\] then just simplify by using intuition
