6 friends went for a party at the house of one of their friends, so there was 7 of them at the party. during the party, they wanted to buy tickets for a lottery and the required number of numbers on the lottery tickets was 5 out of 90 possible numbers (1-90). if each of them was to write only one number and pass it on to another until there's 5 numbers on the tickets. how many tickets should they buy? and how many possible ways can they write 5 different numbers on each ticket?

source: http://www.cims.nyu.edu/~regev/teaching/discrete_math_fall_2005/dmbook.pdf i understand that the number of possible ways they can write 5 numbers = 90*89*87*86*85 according to the book, because some 5 sets of numbers may be repeated, they'd have to buy 90*89*88*87*86/5*4*3*2*1 what i'm not getting is, if there's 7 people at the party, why don't they buy \(\large 7*(\frac{90*89*88*87*86}{5*4*3*2*1}) \) number of tickets?

5 tickets

or even \(\large \frac{90*89*88*87*86}{7*6*5*4*3*2*1} \) ?
